Between July 2018 and June 2019, we worked with local program partners in New York City to conduct a mixed methods evaluation of a domestic violence pilot program in Queens, designed to improve the borough’s response to domestic violence. Generally, we found that the program made substantial progress in its first 16 months, connecting 101 participants to services. However, it can be refined in certain ways. In this brief, we highlight key findings from our evaluation of the pilot’s development and initial implementation, early outcomes, successes and challenges with implementation, and lessons learned for other localities seeking to institute an effective response to domestic violence.
