How will your donation help?
FACT is public-private partnership that raises and distributes money for the prevention and treatment of family violence. It also serves as the data clearinghouse on family violence throughout Virginia and supports organizations and communities to build capacity and promote collaborative responses to family violence. FACT serves human service professionals and members of the general public. It is overseen by a Board of Trustees, appointed by the Governor. FACT does not provide direct services to victims or families, but rather its program provides valuable and useful tools for agencies and communities to utilize in developing their independent prevention services in working with victims. FACT has distributed grant’s in the amount of over $3 million to support a wide range of local programming efforts to prevent and treat family violence across the Commonwealth. Administrative costs of staff, office space, and assistance with special needs in business operations are covered by the Virginia Department of Social Services.
