The Partnership Center Newsletter

April 13, 2010

In This Issue:


Dear Partners,

Last week was National Public Health Week! The theme this year is “A Healthier America: One Community at a Time.” HHS’ Assistant Secretary for Health, Howard Koh, M.D spoke about Public Health week and noted “the almost inseparable bond linking healthy individuals and healthy communities to a healthy nation…Healthy communities can improve the quality of life for all who live, work, worship, learn, and play there.” We’re delighted to partner with you in that effort.

April is also National Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Our featured update section highlights the critical importance of raising our community’s awareness of sexual assault and also the need to reduce children’s exposure to violence. We have provided links to resources we hope can be useful to you in your work in your communities to prevent violence.

As always, please see the bottom section of our newsletter for an updated and expanded grants section filled with information regarding grants available to faith-based and community non-profits like yours.

Sincerely,

Alexia Kelley, Director
Center for Faith-Based & Neighborhood Partnerships

Featured Updates

April is National Sexual Assault Awareness Month

This week, we highlight April as National Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Sexual violence affects tens of millions of Americans and is too often underreported. As a result, women, men and children throughout our communities often don’t receive the support they need. By raising awareness and educating ourselves, our friends and our families, we hope to reduce the incidence of sexual violence and provide greater support to all who are affected by it.

President Obama, in his Presidential Proclamation of National Sexual Assault Awareness Month, said:

“During National Sexual Assault Awareness Month, we recommit ourselves not only to lifting the veil of secrecy and shame surrounding sexual violence, but also to raising awareness, expanding support for victims, and strengthening our response…As we continue to confront this crime, let us reaffirm this month our dedication to take action in our communities and stop abuse before it starts. Together, we can increase awareness about sexual violence, decrease its frequency, punish offenders, help victims, and heal lives.”

Here at the Partnership Center, we are committed to promoting awareness about an issue that affects so many communities. As community leaders, you are well positioned to raise awareness and join the effort to prevent sexual assault. Below are a few helpful links that can be used as guides for promoting awareness and preventing abuse:

Children’s Exposure to Violence 

In a major study conducted by the US Department of Justice in 2008, more than 60% of the children surveyed had been exposed to violence in the previous year, either directly or indirectly (for more results from the survey, see this report: http://www.ncjrs.gov/pdffiles1/ojjdp/227744.pdf).  The Office of the Attorney General (OAG) has launched an initiative to address this issue through “The Attorney General’s Children Exposed to Violence Demonstration Program: Phase I.” (http://www.ojp.gov/newsroom/pressreleases/2010/OJP10058.htm)

Children’s exposure to violence takes many forms: a child may be a victim of violence or a witness to violence; violence may consist of abuse, neglect, maltreatment, domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking, school violence, and community violence. OAG is looking to community groups to design outcome-based programs to end children’s exposure to violence. Participants will develop a comprehensive approach across the continuum of prevention, intervention, treatment, and response, including services, policies, training, evaluation, and public awareness.

For more information on these goals and the application process, click here

Please be sure to register by 1 p.m. EST on June 1st

Applications for funding are also due June 1st at 3 p.m. EST.
