Our efforts focus on building capacity for development and evaluation of locally based strategies by providing training and technical assistance statewide, while funding and supporting the primary prevention initiatives in two local communities:
- Arab Community Center for Economic and Social Services (ACCESS), Dearborn
- LA VIDA/Southwest Detroit Partnership to Prevent Intimate Partner Violence Against Latina Women, Detroit
MCEDSV staff, including an Empowerment Evaluator, help these communities implement both process and outcome evaluation measures. Efforts also include inclusion of local community partners in the development and implementation of both state and local Action Plans.
