[pdf] Funding Effective Program Services for Immigrant Victims of Domestic (2007) (+)

This monograph is designed to help Family Violence Prevention Service Act (FVPSA) Grant administrators expand services to projects that serve immigrant victims of family violence. Specifically, it will focus on factors administrators should examine to determine how effective a program will be in serving a targeted, immigrant population. It will provide guidelines to distinguish between programs that claim to be open to immigrants and those that have established true and trusting relationships with immigrant communities. Often, the projects best able to reach and effectively serve immigrant victims are collaborations between mainstream domestic violence and sexual assault victim service programs and programs that have experience and trusting relationships with women in immigrant communities. Additionally, this monograph will assist FVPSA administrators by providing insight to enhance these collaborations and by providing tools that can be used to ensure that funds support effective services provided through relationships between mainstream programs and those serving immigrant victims.
