ALIVE - Development VISTA
ALIVE’s mission is to provide counseling, emergency sanctuary and other critical services to adults and children impacted by domestic abuse, as well as to increase awareness in order to create a supportive community. ALIVE was established in 1983 to fill voids in existing domestic violence services and did so by providing emergency sanctuary in donated rooms and support groups. Over the years, ALIVE has expanded to provide a 24/7 crisis line, emergency sanctuary in motels, transportation, court advocacy, adult and children individual and group therapy, lethality assessment in collaboration with law enforcement, and community outreach and education. These services are meant to support adult survivors of intimate partner violence and their children. The Development VISTA will build organizational capacity for ALIVE by expanding funding opportunities, volunteer engagement, and building up data management practices to increase capacity for direct services. Key objectives include identifying and managing funding opportunities, including grants, donor relations, and events, developing and managing volunteer and community engagement programs, and increasing data management and reporting practices.
