THIS IS WHAT WE DO TODAY, AND WHAT WE ASPIRE TO DO, WITH YOUR SUPPORT
Since its founding, Saving Promise has used a wide variety of approaches to advocate for intimate partner violence prevention. Most significantly, we have worked tirelessly to frame intimate partner violence as a public health issue with a focus on the following five areas:
RESEARCH CAUSES AND SOLUTIONS
With our partner, Harvard University’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health, we run a Learning Lab that conducts research to identify the root causes of intimate partner violence; its impact on individuals, families, and communities, and on our health and economy; and test and scale existing and new solutions to prevent it.
With your gift today and additional funding, we can conduct more comprehensive and frequent research that will inform, test, and deliver more innovative prevention programs.
LEAD PREVENTION PROGRAMS
We lead programs that aim to prevent intimate partner violence before it occurs, and its recurrence, and restore individuals to health and wellness. Our signature program, Only 11 Minutes—is an innovative public awareness, education and prevention program to promote safe and healthy relationships by socializing the message: What Healthy Looks Like. With your gift today and additional funding, we can dramatically disseminate Only 11 Minutes into every community, such as healthcare, public and private schools, and workplaces.
Before there can be action, there needs to be awareness. Our Only 11 Minutes training course teaches everyone—from individuals to employers to healthcare providers—the impact that intimate partner violence has on our families, communities, health, and economy, and reinforces prevention. By getting educated and passing it on, we can vastly increase the scope of public education, reaching more people in more communities at a larger scale.
It truly takes a village. That’s why we bring together and mobilize people from all walks of life to commit their time, energy, and resources to the cause of preventing intimate partner violence. By targeting 11 essential sectors and 11 ways people can take action, we all can be agents of change. Make a promise today to Get Educated, Take Action and Pass It On.
COLLABORATE ACROSS SECTORS
We mean it when we say it’s our mission to educate, empower and engage 11 essential sectors. That’s why we convene and partner closely with individuals, organizations, and grassroots communities to share, learn, test, and build new programs and strategies that are making a difference. With your gift today, we can innovate faster and better by increasing our capacity to develop ideas with even more community partners.
