Faith Trust Institute's work is made possible through our collaborations and partnerships with organizations and denominations across the country, and across the globe. Over the past several years, these are some of the organizations that have dedicated themselves to strengthening resources for victims and survivors, addressing the faith and cultural issues that impact survivors and perpetrators, and/or working to ensure safe and healthy communities. We thank them for the opportunity to work together toward our shared goals.

Beginning in 2008, InFaith Community Foundation undertook an innovative approach to an issue that was important to their donors—violence against women and girls.
Through the Ending Family Violence Initiative, together we developed a training curriculum and resources to educate faith communities about the pervasiveness of domestic and sexual violence, and the critical role that faith communities can make, including:
Since 2010, we have offered this training to faith communities in Minneapolis, Chicago, Baltimore, San Francisco, Seattle, Philadelphia, and Asheville. More than 500 people, from over 150 churches, have participated in these trainings. Over 71% of responding participants stated that their church is now actively working to address domestic violence, and child abuse.
A Library of Educational Resources:
To further the reach of the Ending Family Violence Initiative, InFaith Community Foundation sponsored an array of live and recorded webinars with noted experts, providing training opportunities to hundreds of people across the country. We have been particularly surprised at the number of victim advocates and social workers who have used these webinar trainings as an opportunity to focus on the needs of their clients, who are women of faith.
Between 2012 and 2015, fifty webinars were produced thanks to the investment from InFaith Community Foundation. These live presentations remain available. The topics vary, however the primary goals were similar to the congregational trainings:
You can access these webinars on our Recorded Webinar page.
