Your feedback helps build solutions
Staff from domestic violence organizations gathered at the Philadelphia Free Library to consider how technology might help solve problems that providers encounter.
What follows are design prototypes they developed, together.
Your ideas and feedback make their designs stronger. Please take a moment to tell us what you think and select your favorite.
Trust the process. Trust the training. Trust the team.
Turnover happens, and transitions are realities we all face. Trust can help. Create a tailored braintrust that makes institutional histories and current processes transparent and accessible for a new hire or a colleague stepping in after a transition.
This collaborative platform organizes resources and content, and helps colleagues answer, "who do I contact about that project?" and “what do you know about this topic?” without spending time asking and hunting for the person or the resource you need. When information doesn’t yet exist, Trust users receive notifications on topics relevant to them, so they can answer and provide the resources people need.

Your single source for all domestic violence data.
Domestic Violence service providers can streamline data gathering and access a robust data feature useful for funders or for advocacy and awareness campaigns. Once service providers are vetted by a governance council, they are provided a secure log in to enter client information, either on a computer or on the go using a mobile phone or tablet.
Providers can search and filter regional or national aggregate data and visualize it on a secure dashboard. From the dashboard, users can print, download, or submit standardized reports directly to the reporting agency. Future plans for DVData.org include data consumable by the public for raising awareness and supporting advocacy.
A resource sharing hub for all service providers.
HubIT is the place where social service agencies that support survivors of intimate partner violence can find what they need and share what they have.
Agencies can ask questions, promote events, share resources, participate in discussions, and invite other agencies to contribute, all in service of supporting survivors and expanding access to services. From referrals and resources to online conversations and collaborations, visit hubIT and benefit from the knowledge and experience of your peers.
