Families in Crisis
Since 1991, FIC has been the only domestic violence program serving Warren County. Their mission is to interrupt the cycle of domestic violence, empowering individuals to create fulfilling lives for themselves, and hold offenders accountable. Their shelter becomes a home for victims of domestic violence by providing everything that they may need, such as medical attention, counseling, food, clothing, personal items, transportation, and referrals to help them utilize community and inner agency resources that will enable them to heal emotionally, physically, and economically. The grant requested will fund the New Beginnings Empowerment Program by supporting portions of program director and case manager, who work directly with clients, and the remaining portion will provide mental health treatment, transportation, childcare and program materials for victims. Outcomes include: 60% or 135 out of 200 domestic violence victims that complete the program will show improved mental health through a 10 point increase in their GAF score from intake to termination. 75% or 150 of the 200 victims that enter program will have increased their self sufficiency by 2 bench marks according to the Self Sufficiency Matrix by the end of services. 60% or 135 of the domestic violence victims that enter program will remain violence free and self sufficient at the 1 month and 3 month post program follow-up.
