Current Projects

National Domestic Violence Fatality Review Initiative

The mission of the National Domestic Violence Fatality Review Initiative (NDVFRI) is to provide technical assistance for the reviewing of domestic violence related deaths with the underlying objectives of preventing them in the future, preserving the safety of battered women, and holding accountable both the perpetrators of domestic violence and the multiple agencies and organizations that come into contact with the parties.

Arizona Intimate Partner Risk Assessment Instrument System

Arizona Intimate Partner Risk Assessment Instrument System (APRAIS) produces standardized and evidence-based risk assessment tools and protocols for law enforcement and advocacy, creates a shared language of risk to inform CJS decisions, provides education to inform case handling and public awareness on a broader scale, creates an addendum to Form 4 through which law enforcement can communicate IPV risk to the court, and works with law enforcement regarding existing reporting mechanisms and possible long-term realignment.

Arizona Child and Adolescent Survivor Initiative

The Arizona Child & Adolescent Survivor Initiative (ACASI) mission is to deliver a multi-county, trauma-informed system of care to provide specialized victim services and support to children who have lost a parent to intimate partner homicide.
