Award Description: The Texas Council on Family Violence (TCFV) promotes safe and healthy relationships by supporting service providers, facilitating strategic prevention efforts, and creating opportunities for freedom from domestic violence. TCFV works to expand and strengthen the statewide network of domestic violence agencies to enhance their ability to reach more victims, provide high quality service delivery and ultimately, end domestic violence. TCFV will hold an Economic Justice Summit to bring advocates from across the state together to discuss financial issues that directly affect victims of domestic violence. The Summit will support the Recovery Act’s goal to promote economic recovery by utilizing local businesses such as a hotel, restaurants, printers, and transportation services to ensure the training is a success.
