As the state coalition, CCADV is committed to informing policy, advocacy, public awareness, technical assistance and training, as it relates to family and domestic violence in Connecticut. It is our commitment to provide and generate best practice and share relevant information with our member programs, as well as communities and stakeholders throughout the state.
By providing ongoing technical assistance to member programs, it is the Coalition’s objective to enhance overall victim services by developing strategic training, educational opportunities, problem-solving strategies and sustaining these efforts with ongoing technical assistance.
Working in close collaboration with CCADV’s Training Institute, trainings are developed and tailored to meet the specific needs of our programs and are often offered by leading national experts.
In determining its technical assistance activities, CCADV actively solicits member program input to ensure that our efforts respond to the specific needs of individuals and families seeking domestic violence services in Connecticut. The feedback provided by this partnership, subsequently informs the process of how the technical assistance is provided and helps them meet projected program outcomes.
Every member program is assigned a liaison/CCADV employee who manages queries and concerns, as well as provides ongoing programmatic support. Many of our member programs’ programmatic concerns resonate with the complexities involved in managing and developing an effective social service program. CCADV’s focus is to provide technical assistance for both general and program specific challenges.
Our technical assistance plan includes a biennial conference offered for state and CCADV member program staff, peer-to-peer consultation, site visits, resource sharing, and other program specific assistance. Other CCADV initiatives and projects which involve ongoing technical assistance include working with underserved communities, a trauma-informed initiative, children’s program development and prevention.
