Promising Futures, a project of Futures Without Violence, is conducting a National Scan in search of innovative, community-driven, and culturally grounded services for children, youth, and parents experiencing family violence and other traumas.  

Organizations working to serve survivors and prevent domestic violence are doing great work in communities across the country and the context of a global pandemic. We also know many programs are working on similar issues that may or may not be within the field and whose approaches we can learn.

With this goal in mind, we are reaching out to experts in the field and their communities who can help us identify replicable, promising intervention models that help to foster safer conditions for children & caregivers, healing for those impacted by violence across age and gender spectrums, parent-child bonding, and/or social-emotional skills.  

If permitted by the program creators, program models and tools will be shared on the Promising Futures website to continue to advance the field’s access to meaningful programming. For example, programs from the previous National Scan can be found here. In this iteration of the scan, we hope to center and include more community-based and culturally grounded programs. You may read more about elements of promising program models here. Any recommendations you make will help share knowledge across communities.
