The Boston Foundation has awarded a $15,000 grant to FFI to support our work training Massachusetts state agencies on the Five Domains of Wellbeing as part of the Interagency Task Force’s work to increase the effectiveness of government’s response to the intersection of homelessness, domestic violence and sexual violence. With this grant, FFI will design a curriculum and conduct a full day training for members of the Integration Task Force that is charged with carrying out the state’s plan (state agencies and public homelessness and anti-violence coalitions), FFI will also provide post-training coaching and support work. “We are deeply grateful to the Boston Foundation for their support of this critical systems integration project, to improve how our state addresses the needs of domestic and sexual violence survivors who are homeless or at risk of being homeless,” said Erin Miller, FFI’s Board Chair.
