This toolkit starts from the reality that any community can experience a domestic violence homicide. Building collaborative relationships, including with clergy, prior to a crisis is of utmost importance to establish the foundation and spirit with which your response will be handled. This document provides a framework for programs and their communities to develop a plan that will provide guidance in responding to a domestic violence homicide, whether the victim had been a client or not.
