Building 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
