In addition to investments in integrated behavioral healthcare services and systems, the Foundation continues to be a partner in the Cultural Responsiveness Domestic Violence Network to ensure that domestic violence prevention and intervention strategies are tailored to meet the unique needs of survivors in diverse communities across the state. This includes grants to disseminate new organizational assessment tools and best practices, as well advocacy efforts to encourage federal funding strategies that support individuals and families in marginalized communities.
These grants bring the Foundation's total philanthropic giving to more than $384 million since 2002.
