Full Frame Initiative

The Cherokee Family Violence Center is a member of the Full Frame Initiative’s Domestic and Sexual Violence (DSV) Cohort Demonstration Project. This Project is a multi-year endeavor bringing together 10 exemplary DSV organizations and a number of allies from across the country as a learning and action community. Together we will intentionally orient our work around the Five Domains of Wellbeing in order to reflect and support the “full frame” of survivors’ lives. This project will also pilot and refine participant assessment, tracking and outcome measure tools focused on the Five Domains of Wellbeing; evaluate the impact of the shift to a full frame approach on organizations and for survivors; and generate data about what works in helping survivors facing complex challenges.

In May 2014 FFI released a report of the DSV Cohort’s work and our collective call to action, to move the DSV field from services to reclaim our roots in social change and social justice.  A link to the DSV Cohort Report is available here.
