Desired Key Partners:
The key partners in achieving our goals would include hospitals, courts, mental health (MH), substance abuse (SA), faith communities, social security (SS), and attorneys who identify victims of domestic violence and must refer them to domestic violence agencies. Victims of domestic violence must also share information through the word of mouth in the community or through religious congregations and assistance associations.
