Partners in Business and Policy
|“Every dollar invested in prevention not only changes the lives of individuals, but also saves literally hundreds of dollars in the costs associated with future violence. However, public funding is very limited and the number of community-based organizations receiving any of these funds is also limited. Supporting opportunities for communities to work together and raising private dollars is essential - to benefit the health and wellbeing of everyone.”
(Virginia Sexual & Domestic Violence Action Alliance, 2013)
