Community Work | Coordinated Community Response

TCFV is committed to fostering community and systematic wide participation and engagement around family violence. This project is designed to enhance local family violence systems collaboration, and will focus on providing intensive attention and resources to help communities hone their formal Coordinated Community Response (CCR) to family violence.


Each webinar format gives participants the ease of flexibility; participants can pause and return to the video on their own time or observe in one sitting. After each webinar is completed, please notify Sarah of your completion and return any mini assignments to Sarah Hilderbrand.

Fundamentals of Coordinated Community Response

In this webinar, participants will learn the basics of a Coordinated Community Response (CCR). Participants will gather historical knowledge on the development of a CCR, an overview of the project goals and timeline, essentials of successful collaboration, and the key principles of a CCR.
