Launched in 2009, the R.O.S.E. Fund Research and Report Card Program is focused on researching domestic violence (DV) best-practices and simplifying them to create an actionable set of tools.  The program allows concerned citizens to play a role in breaking the silence and the cycle of DV in their local communities with a scorecard of three critical questions:

  • What’s the specific impact of DV in my home town?
  • How capable is my home town of dealing with this issue?
  • What can and should I do about it?

These questions allow individuals to conduct a ‘Community Impact Analysis,’ enabling them to assess and better understand the impact of DV in their respective communities.  These questions create the ability to benchmark and compare how effectively communities leverage best-practices around DV awareness, education, intervention and prevention.

Lastly, the program provides a keen sense, or “roadmap,” of methods to improve a community’s response to DV.

The R.O.S.E. Fund Research and Report Card has been developed in conjunction with volunteers and advisors known for their expertise in what successfully increases DV prevention.  Theprogram promises to accelerate the pace at which we break both the silence and the cycle of DV in our communities.
