Following are projects that MCEDSV is currently engaged in to help end domestic and sexual violence in Michigan
Domestic Violence Prevention Enhancement and Leadership Through Alliances, Focusing in Outcomes for Communities United with States - DELTA FOCUS
MCEDSV continues our work with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) through the new DELTA FOCUS Project. Building on our work under the original DELTA Project, DELTA FOCUS seeks to reduce first‐time occurrences of domestic violence by supporting social change and education efforts of local coordinated community response teams, with a specific emphasis on approaches that reflect the outer levels of the social ecology.
Building the Safety Net Project - BSN
MCEDSV continues making great progress on the innovative Building the Safety Net Project (BSN). Generously supported by the McGregor Fund, the goal of BSN is to increase long‐term sustainability and capacity of domestic violence programs in the City of Detroit.
Nonprofit Legal and Management Assistance Program - NPLMAP
The MCEDSV Nonprofit Legal and Management Assistance Program is for coalition members and provides management consultation to eligible member programs. Each member program has access to the Program Director/Attorney for consultation concerning business and employment law matters. The program goal is to educate and prepare agency directors to manage the risk of employment and operational liability, allowing the organization to better serve survivors.
In spring 2011, MCEDSV received a two‐year Engaging Men grant from the Department of Justice through the Office of Violence Against Women (OVW). The goal of the project is to create successful, sustainable, community specific programming to effectively engage men and boys in the movement to end violence against women. MCEDSV is one of the 23 inaugural recipients of the Engaging Men grants, and our work with two local communities is an extention of our existing Mobiliizing Men in Michigan initiative.
Education, Training, and Enhanced Services to End Violence Against and Abuse of Women with Disabilities Program
In October 2010, MCEDSV received a three-year grant from the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) to create sustainable, systemic changes within organizations that will result in effective services for adults with disabilities and/or who are deaf who have experienced domestic and sexual violence. The focus in Michigan is to increase physical, programmatic, and attitudinal accessibility and responsiveness for adults with developmental disabilities who have experienced DV/SV in Michigan.
