Domestic violence is on the rise and many people are faced with it every day including men, women and children. There are many situations on why and how domestic violence occurs throughout many different communities around the United States. In the community I am setting up my safe house over the last 5 years the city of Portland has seen abuse ranging from spousal abuse, child abuse, assault, domestic/ youth violence to road rage. I believe the abuse occurs in these communities due to the lack of knowledge of abuse and the continuing of abuse, because people have nowhere to go when the abuse occurs.
There are many people and organizations that help in these domestic violence cases by providing counseling and resources to domestic violence groups, but there are not many places for people to go when these violence’s occur and my Safe house provides these services. Giving those who need to remove themselves from the situation and giving then a safe place to go while they set up more permanent situations can be greatly needed. * Use a funnel approach. * Start with the generalized problem as it occurs in your community. * Move to the conditions which make this a problem. Outline current resources that address this problem and identify gaps in those resources. * Identify how your proposal will fill these gaps. Project Goals and Objectives Providing temporary shelter for those are faced with situation of domestic violence and help find permanent resources so they can live healthier lifestyles. * What specific goals are you trying to achieve? * What measurable milestones will you reach in meeting those goals? * How will you and the funder know that you are making progress towards your goals?
