Mending the Sacred Hoop On-site Training

We are pleased to announce that the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) has awarded Mending the Sacred Hoop TA Project (MSH-TA) to provide on-site training and technical assistance to OVW Tribal grantees on developing and implementing a victim-centered coordinated community response to domestic violence, dating violence and stalking in their communities.

MSH-TA’s on-site training and targeted TA assists Tribal grantees to enhance the safety of Native women and their children through the development and implementation of a coordinated community response to domestic violence in their communities, including:

  • Building a framework of understanding from which to respond to intimate partner violence between participating agencies interfacing in the lives of women experiencing domestic violence;
  • Developing, building, and increasing partnerships between systems;
  • Developing participating system policies, procedures and protocols that provide safety to victims of intimate partner violence and uphold offender accountability;
  • Monitoring and strengthening the response to domestic violence, including systems advocacy.

This on-site training opportunity is available at no cost to all Office on Violence Against Women Tribal grantees wishing to develop and implement a coordinated community response to intimate partner violence or strengthen the current coordinated response (CCR) in their communities. You can request on-site CCR training for your community online, via our Onsite Training Request; by calling us at 888-305-1650 or by emailing us. For information about MSH-TA’s Coordinated Community Response Training, see our Trainings.
