The purpose of this project was to write a grant to fund a Family Nights program to promote the resilience of Latino women and their children with a history of intimate partner violence. The literature review addressed the prevalence, outcomes, barriers to services, and interventions relevant to the unique needs of this population. The Hearst Foundations were selected as the potential funder.
The program would be offered through the YWCA—San Gabriel Valley, Women in Need Growing Strong Program. The goals of the Family Nights program include reduction of developmental problems associated with exposure to intimate partner violence and development of healthier mother—child relationships. The program would enable participants to interact in a violence free environment, engage in pro-social behaviors, and build on strengths. The program's vision is to provide an avenue for Latino mothers and children to develop resiliency despite the adversity of having experienced intimate partner violence.
