Addressing the Needs of Victims of Domestic Violence in Housing Programs
The purpose of this project is to address the critical behavioral health needs experienced by victims of domestic violence residing in domestic violence housing. The project will expand access to low-barrier, voluntary behavioral health services for victims of domestic violence residing in domestic violence housing programs by hiring co-located and/or mobile licensed mental health professionals.
Evaluation & Research
The project evaluation will consist of three principal components:
- A Needs Assessment to examine each agency’s current services, further identify contextually-relevant practice gaps, and triangulate stakeholder perspectives regarding needs and barriers.
- An Implementation Evaluation to determine the extent to which the project is being implemented as designed, and to identify factors that are facilitating or impeding successful implementation.
- An Outcome Evaluation focused on assessing changes in staff behavior, housing and service delivery, and agency practice that have resulted from the project.
The evaluation will culminate in a Needs Assessment Report, Implementation Reports, and an Outcome Evaluation Report.
