SD orgs awarded Blue Shield grant

Blue Shield of California Foundation on Wednesday announced a new funding initiative to integrate health care and domestic violence systems in California. Leveraging the issue-expertise and leadership of partner organization Futures Without Violence, the effort kicks-off with a new learning network and series of grants to support greater collaboration between safety net providers and domestic violence service organizations across the state.

Grantee organizations in San Diego are the Center for Community Solutions and Family Health Centers of San Diego.

As the state’s largest private funder of domestic violence services and prevention, this body of work further extends the foundation’s commitment to ending domestic violence in California. The effort launches as new guidelines from the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force and federal policy changes under the Affordable Care Act now cover domestic violence screenings as part of women’s preventive health visits.

To support initial cross-sector partnerships, the foundation is working with Futures Without Violence through a grant to facilitate a peer learning network, provide technical assistance to grantees, and evaluate the impact of integrated service-delivery models. Futures Without Violence played an instrumental role in getting victims of abuse included in several new protections and programs under the Affordable Care Act.
