After three years of funding to the inaugural WOMEN’S WAY Action Partners (WWAP) cohort, we are pleased to announce the receipients of WWAP 2.0:
These three high-performing, women-led organizations will receive $240,000 in funding from WOMEN’S WAY from 2015-2017 to implement a project designed to propel systems change in the way that City and State entities identify and respond to domestic violence. In addition to the collaborative project, funding will also support the general operations of the three Action Partners.
The work of Women Against Abuse, the Women’s Law Project and Women Organized Against Rape has led to major shifts in the police, prosecution, probation, and judicial responses to sexual and domestic violence in Philadelphia. With dedicated funding from the WOMEN’S WAY Action Partners program, the organizations will expand their collaborative efforts to engage health and human service providers, including the Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual Disabilities Services (DBHIDS) of the City of Philadelphia,to ensure that domestic-violence screenings and trauma-informed interventions and referrals are integrated into systems that are likely to encounters survivors of gender-based violence.
About the WWAP 2.0 Model
The longevity of a three-year innovative partnership means that WOMEN’S WAY and its Action Partners will all benefit from the cross-pollination of mutual expertise, ensuring greater community impact on issues important to our mission. As a way to strategically align our resources, WOMEN’S WAY will invest in a group of dynamic organizations that are doing work in communities to ensure that women and girls can achieve economic equity, safety, and justice and will have unfettered access to opportunity.
