The Family Violence Prevention Project's mission is to eliminate and prevent family violence in the diverse & caring communities throughout Hamilton County. 

The Family Violence Prevention Project empowers individuals, neighborhoods, organizations, schools, and systems-based structures to implement comprehensive strategic initiatives that prevent the following forms of family violence:

  • Intimate Partner Abuse
  • Child Abuse
  • Abuse of People with Disabilities
  • Elder Abuse


While the Family Violence Prevention's Project's ultimate goal is to prevent family violence, its short-term and intermediate goals are to change community attitudes and values that tolerate family violence; increase knowledge and use of alternatives to violent behavior; and to increase protective factors for populations at-risk for family violence.

A Unique Approach: Collaboration

The Family Violence Prevention Project collaborative is comprised of over 40 public and private agencies that represent various perspectives in the field of family violence including advocates, direct service providers, and funders. These agencies span the spectrum of family violence service provision from the medical community to the criminal justice system. The YWCA of Greater Cincinnati serves as the lead agency.  The United Way of Greater Cincinnati is the lead partner.
