Promising Futures: Best Practice for Serving Children, Youth and Parents Experiencing Domestic Violence

Promising Futures: Best Practices for Serving Children, Youth, and Parents Experiencing Domestic Violence is a website developed by Futures Without Violence, formerly Family Violence Prevention Fund, and is designed to help domestic violence advocates enhance their programming for children and their abused parents. If you are just starting to think about how your program’s policies could better reflect an equal commitment to domestic violence survivors and children, or you have been delivering holistic services for all family members for years, this website has information and tools that can help you advance your practice.

The website includes:

  • A searchable database of evidence based interventions and promising practices for serving children and youth exposed to domestic violence
  • Strategies for strengthening program readiness and capacity to deliver developmentally appropriate, trauma informed and effective programming
  • Information and resources on protective factors, resilience, and interventions that strengthen the mother-child bond
  • Guidance on program evaluation and adaptation
  • Testimonials highlighting states and programs doing innovative work
  • Resources and guidance on working with culturally diverse families
  • Training curriculums, research articles, and other tools for advocates
  • Resources for parents & caregivers
