Building-Comprehensive-Solutions-to-Domestic-Violence-300x84.pngBuilding Comprehensive Solutions Project provides a victim-defined framework for creating solutions to domestic violence. BCS supports the development of comprehensive solutions to domestic violence through: victim-defined advocacy at the individual and systemic levels; collaboration; and advocate-defined resources. The project offers Thinking and Learning Exercises that can be used to explore these key elements with staff and volunteers.

"I came here and I thought I was going through a really bad situation, but then you hear someone else going through something. It makes it easier...you can relate. A lot of women when they feel afraid or embarrassed and they hear someone else...they feel they can relate and it makes them more comfortable." - Domestic Violence Evidence Project

And while art is not the panacea for abuse, it is certainly a way through it and one that not only transforms the atrocities of violence, but also sends a powerful message that ultimately breaks the silence. - Malchiodi, 2008
