by Banda, Omar, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2009, 55; 1466084
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant to implement a domestic violence intervention services program for families in the community of Watts in Los Angeles, California. An extensive literature review was conducted to arrive at the best evidence-based method aimed at reducing the recurrence of domestic violence.

The program's main objectives will be to facilitate a free, court-ordered batterer treatment program; personal empowerment groups; and counseling services for perpetrators, victims, and their families in order to prevent battering from becoming an intergenerational issue. The program will be conducted at the Kaiser Permanente Watts Counseling and Learning Center. The potential funding source chosen for this program is the Kaiser Permanente Southern California and National Grants Program. If funded, this program would reduce the number of violent crimes that plague this community and would allow many families an opportunity for a new beginning.
