Home to the National Health Initiative on Violence and Abuse, the Health program works across sectors to advance quality and equitable health care and supportive services for survivors of domestic/sexual violence and human trafficking/exploitation.
Recognizing that experiencing domestic and sexual violence can have lifelong health impacts, FUTURES works across sectors to pioneer best practices, programs, research and policies to address the unique health needs of survivors of violence, and promote prevention. Our work encompasses training and technical assistance to improve health care providers’ response to domestic violence, building the capacity of domestic violence programs to meet the needs of survivors, and advancing innovative partnerships that make health care more accessible to survivors when they need it most.
For nearly 30 years, FUTURES has been the federally-designated National Health Resource Center on Domestic Violence, and since 2020, has operated Health Partners on IPV + Exploitation to transform health center responses. Bridging the gaps between domestic and sexual violence advocates, health care professionals, and other community based providers, our programs support systems changes that promote a more holistic approach to health care, healing and wellness for survivors of violence.
