Dear Advocate:

I want to let you know about a new online resource that might help you enhance and advance your practice.

Promising Futures: Best Practices for Serving Children, Youth, and Parents Experiencing Domestic Violence is a website developed by FUTURES to help domestic violence advocates enhance their programming for children and their mothers.

The new site features:

  • An info-graphic depicting protective factors that support resiliency and healing for children and youth
  • A searchable database of evidence-based interventions and promising practices for serving children and youth
  • Strategies for strengthening program capacity to deliver developmentally appropriate, trauma informed, and effective programming
  • Information and resources on protective factors, resilience, and interventions that strengthen the mother-child bond
  • Guidance on program evaluation and adaptation
  • Resources and guidance on working with culturally diverse families
  • Training curriculums, research articles, and other tools for advocates & parents/caregivers

The website is designed to meet varying levels of needs—whether you’re just starting to think about program policies that could better serve mothers and children, or you’ve been delivering holistic services for all family members for years. 

Feel free to share this resource with your network on social media. Below is some suggested content you are welcome to use. I’ve also attached our new Promising Futures info-graphic that you can use to accompany your social media posts, or use as you see fit.
