Community Interfaith Coordination: Domestic Violence Prevention Committee
Community Interfaith Coordination supports faith community engagement in domestic violence prevention and victim support through education initiatives and connections to public and private domestic violence response resources.
The Committee includes faith community and faith based organization representatives and staff from government and non-profit organizations with a mission to prevent domestic violence, support domestic violence victims and/or work with abusers. The Committee organizes faith based domestic violence prevention and response workshops, provides presentations to faith communities, and prepares and distributes faith based and community domestic violence prevention resource documents. The Committee represents the faith community on the Fairfax County Domestic Violence Prevention Coordination Policy Council and the Fairfax County Domestic Violence Network.
