My Sister’s Place works with community partners to end domestic violence and empower lives through coordinating programs, services, trainings, events, and much more with local organizations. My Sister’s Place is excited to welcome new partnerships for FY2017-2018:
My Sister’s Place is the first domestic violence service organization to partner with the Dept of Health for their Help Me Grow DC program. In this developing partnership, DHOH staff will train MSP employees to recognize and work with children showing signs of developmental needs. The DHS will give assessments to children at MSP’s shelter to assess development needs and connect families to the developmental and behavioral resources needed to give all children their best start.
The Community Outreach Program (COP) plays an important role in the FBI’s broader efforts to improve their understanding of the communities they serve and the threats they face. The primary purpose of the FBI’s COP is simple: to enhance public trust and confidence in the FBI by fostering the FBI’s relationship within various communities. The COP supports the FBI’s mission by educating members of the public on how they can help protect themselves and their communities.
