State Coalitions Chapter from the 2016 Biennial Report to Congress
Read about program accomplishments from July 2013 - June 2015 and hear from grantees in their own words.
Texas has over 100 domestic violence programs, some of which are in extremely rural areas that do not have the funds to send all their direct service staff to trainings. Through this State Coalition funding, TCFV hosts trainings in these remote rural areas such as Alpine, Borger, and Dumas. The trainings are attended by over 30 advocates and staff from local programs. The area directors (TCFV Board members representing each of the nine regions), communicate with their local members and select the topics they want TCFV to address in their regional training. If TCFV does not have the expertise on staff we locate an external expert who can provide the training. With the State Coalitions funding, we are able to provide travel, per diem, and presenter fees, and offer up to six hours of much needed training to local
domestic violence programs in need of external expertise.
