Congratulations to Women In Distress Child Protection Investigation (CPI) Project
Congratulations to Women In Distress Child Protection Investigation (CPI) Project for winning the 2018 Broward Domestic Violence Council award for the category of Outstanding Program. In 2009, Women In Distress was granted the opportunity to be one of the first domestic violence centers in Florida to implement the CPI Project. The objective of the CPI Project is to invite community partners in the dependency system to work together and collaborate to keep children safe and together with the non-offending parent. Over the last nine years, the CPI Project has made a significant impact on how the community addresses domestic violence, including an improvement in holding batterers accountable for their actions and providing effective services to reduce the likelihood of re-victimization. What first began as a single CPI Advocate has successfully expanded into a team of three. Congratulations to the CPI Project team at Women In Distress.
