Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project is to design a support group program for victims of domestic violence, identify a potential funding source, and write a grant to fund the program. A literature review will be conducted to investigate the history of domestic violence and possible solutions.

Domestic-violence victims generally lack support, education, and motivation; which are needed to overcome this problem. The proposed program seeks to provide support, education, and motivation to domestic violence victims. It targets female victims of domestic violence who are receiving services at Women's Transitional Living Center, Inc. The potential funding source is The Crail-Johnson Foundation, which has funded various similar programs in the past.

The goal of this project is to provide a support group that will enable the women to develop an effective support system, improve their life skills and increase their self-esteem, and maintain a job.
