GRANTS THAT SPF PROGRAM HAS RECEIVED
FAITH is a partner with Fairfax County and the Women’s Center to facilitate the visitation and exchange program for children impacted by domestic violence at the Fairfax County courthouse. The Safe Haven program has been funded by the Department of Justice, Office of Violence Against Women.
In 2009 FAITH, Fairfax County and The Women Center of Vienna were granted the Safe Haven grant by Department Of Justice to establish a supervised visitation and supervised exchange center for children coming from families with domestic violence. FAITH also benefited from VAWA funding by being able to attend trainings on domestic violence and victim advocacy. FAITH has been keeping data on domestic Violence clients. Most of our clients are Muslim. This data on Muslims is able to give some insight to the Imams on their congregation. The Imams are looking forward to giving sermons on social issues which are prevalent in their congregation.
2006 – 2010
From 2006 to 2010 FAITH Social Services Domestic Violence Program was funded by the Legal Assistance for Victims grant in partnership with LSNV, APALRC and the Korean Community Services Board. With that funding we helped over 200 victims of domestic violence in those four years.
