Project Connect , a groundbreaking multi-state initiative of Futures Without Violence , seeks to develop comprehensive models of public health prevention and intervention that can lead to improved health and safety for victims of sexual and domestic violence. In Virginia, one of ten Project Connect sites nationwide, the project's focus lies in family planning/reproductive health and home visiting settings. The Virginia Department of Health's Division of Prevention and Health Promotion, in partnership with the Division of Child and Adolescent Health, the Virginia Home Visiting Consortium, and the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance, has developed assessment strategies and tools, training curricula, educational materials and policy/procedure guidance to better enable family planning clinic staff and home visitors to identify and provide support and referral to individuals and families impacted by sexual and domestic violence.
