ToolkitsPCADV-OCDEL: Serving families who are experiencing domestic violence

This toolkit is for family support staff and domestic violence programs to better understand how our agencies can collaborate to provide resources to survivors.

The Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence (PCADV) and Office of Child Development and Early Learning (OCDEL) recognize that domestic violence is a public and community health epidemic. We understand that the more education that is available to family support workers and Family Support staff on the issue of domestic violence the better prepared they will be when working with survivors. We also recognize that domestic violence advocates rely on community partnerships for support when working with survivors and their families.

The goal of this toolkit is to educate family support workers and Family Support staff on how domestic violence may impact the clients and families they serve while screening for intimate partner violence. It also aims to provide domestic violence programs with a deeper understanding of the OCDEL network and the services their programs provide within all communities across the Commonwealth. Communities are stronger together, and the better we understand how our agencies can collaborate to provide resources to survivors, the closer we come to ending domestic violence.
