Southern Indian Health Council, Inc.
The main goal of the grant funding will be to promote education leading to recognition of abuse which then leads to prevention and intervention. The SIHC will focus on several evidence-based community program objectives which will be beneficial to American Indian communities. Through the SIHC's DVPI grant initiative we will be able to address a wide range of domestic difficulties with preventative training measures and positive reinforcement. Southern Indian Health Council is very appreciative of the important family and individual training opportunity that the DVPI grant will provide.
