VAWnet Summary:

Religion & Domestic Violence: Information and Resources - Key Issue: Funding for Faith-Based Organizations by The National Resource Center on Domestic Violence (2007)

This information packet describes funding available through the Compassion Capital Fund (CCF) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Center for Faith-Based and Community Initiatives. Through the provision of technical assistance and resource guides, CCF is creating opportunities and removing barriers so that faith-based and community organizations can compete equally for funding. As new organizations receive funding to provide social services, including services to victims and survivors of domestic violence and their children, however, it becomes increasingly important for existing programs to establish partnerships and collaborations with other service providers in their area to ensure that the needs of battered women and their children are met.
