Evaluation Report

Promotora Contra La Violencia
Evaluation Report
by Barbara Kappos, LCSW; Martha Cristo, PhD; Stephanie Mesones Alvarado, MPH; Genoveva Lopez, BA.

This report documents use of the ELAWC’s Promotoras Contra La Violencia (PCLV) training model to integrate DV prevention programs and services among low-income, Latina women throughout the state of California.

ELAWC served as the lead agency and worked with three other organizations to expand and enhance capacity to evaluate and implement Promotora programs in local communities.

A grant through Blue Shield of California Foundation provided funding to enable partners to share expertise in working with farm workers, domestic violence, advocacy, financial literacy, and prevention.
