Since 1998, Futures Without Violence has hosted interns in varying fields: medical, legal, public health and social work. Working with staff members at our offices, interns have benefited
from the mentorship of staff while gaining knowledge of strategies to prevent violence against women and children. Through our work as the National Health Resource Center on Domestic Violence, Futures Without Violence has organized a campus-based Campus Leadership
Program to spur creative, student-led action to change university policy, enhance curriculum, and raise awareness and shift campus culture around dating violence, domestic violence and the connection to sexual assault, and reproductive coercion.
For almost two decades, the National Health Resource Center on Domestic Violence has supported health care professionals, domestic violence experts, survivors, and policy makers at all levels
as they improve health care’s response to domestic violence. The Center is funded by a grant from the Family Violence Prevention & Services Program, Family & Youth Services Bureau, Administration for Children and Families, U.S. Department of Health and Human
Services, and is a member of the Domestic Violence Resource Network.
