The goals are as follow: reduce the incident of domestic and family violence in Camden County and surrounding areas by employing various intervention strategies designed to break the cycles of abuse; reduce crime statistics as they relate to substance abuse and domestic violence; increase family stabilization and promote positive social outcomes by altering the affects of violence on family outcomes; reduce the occurrence of homelessness related to domestic violence; and assist shelter residents and other victims of domestic violence in identifying security and maintain suitable employment.
