MCVPCrisis & Prevention Center Marketing & Development VISTA
Securing safe, affordable housing is a key step in breaking the cycle of violence in our communities. That is why MCVP has implemented a Housing First program and employed a Housing First Advocate. Additionally, MCVP manages a domestic violence shelter, located at a confidential address, to house up to 12 survivors fleeing imminent danger. The most lethal time for a survivor of domestic violence is when they are in the process of leaving or have just left the abusive relationship (2020 Why Do Victims Stay National Coalition Against Domestic Violence). On average, three women die at the hands of a current or former intimate partner every day (2020 Violence Against Women in the United States Statistics National Organization for Women Foundation). Between 2009 and 2017, New Hampshire saw 65 domestic violence-related homicides, with a case in both Cheshire and Hillsborough county in 2017 (2019 NH Domestic Violence Fatality Review Committee 2016-2017 Biennial Review NH Department of Justice). The Monadnock Center for Violence Prevention (dba MCVP: Crisis & Prevention Center) is the crisis center for Cheshire and western Hillsborough counties. Serving survivors of domestic and sexual violence, stalking, and human sex-trafficking, MCVP believes that everyone has the right to live free from violence and that violence can be prevented. In 2020, MCVP served 691 survivors, of which up to 75% are considered to be living in poverty with low to moderate income. Ensuring that survivors can identify abuse, find safe housing alternatives, and create plans to leave abusive relationships is at the foundation of everything done at MCVP. Survivors are best positioned to lead safe, healthy lives free from abuse when crisis intervention services include safe housing services.

In order to achieve these goals, the VISTA will assist in community outreach efforts via our social media and website to expand services and prevention throughout our community. Allowing MCVP to reach more vulnerable and underserved populations.
