How FUTURES is making a difference

 FUTURES works at the forefront of policy and research to advance promising practices in health care, education, law enforcement, and in the community that help children and youth heal and thrive. Working with violence prevention advocates and educators, FUTURES has worked to break the cycle of violence by developing groundbreaking programs to prevent teen dating violence and promote healthy relationships.

 FUTURES focuses on helping children and youth who have been exposed to or are victims of violence, changing the social norms and attitudes that tolerate and condone violence, engaging men and boys in prevention efforts and ensuring that there are adequate services and supports for victims. They prioritize multi-sectoral solutions built around evidence and systems reforms that lead to long-term, sustainable change.

 FUTURES is building innovative partnerships between companies, worker associations and unions, and anti-violence advocates and service providers to increase the safety and economic security of vulnerable workers.

 FUTURES provides access to the latest research, training, and resources to improve the health care response to domestic violence. Bridging the gaps between domestic and sexual violence advocates, health care professionals, and social workers, their programs support innovative partnerships that promote a more holistic approach to health care for survivors of violence.
