safe start center working together

In 2005, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) initiated phase 2 of the Safe Start initiative, funding fifteen Safe Start Promising Approaches sites around the country to develop and test evidence-based, interdisciplinary approaches to preventing and reducing the impact of exposure to violence on children and their families. This booklet describes the interventions piloted for this population by the fifteen Safe Start Promising Approaches sites and provides a snapshot of a family's experience as it progresses through the different Safe Start programs.
