Enhancing Safety for Women: Communities of color, domestic violence, and social welfare services for low-income men

General Material
Author(s)

Focusing on low-income African American communities, Enhancing Safety considers womens experiences of domestic violence within the broader context of their lives. It discusses economic needs that are shared by both women and men; provides information on social welfare services for men (often called responsible fatherhood programs); and demonstrates that community-based programs that address the needs of low-income men of color can respond to an unmet need for some domestic violence victims.
