Community Outreach: CIDFO's Community Education and Outreach program works to engage the general public in education and community action efforts against domestic violence.

Transportation: Survivors may set up appointments with the domestic violence program staff for transportation for domestic violence related appointments and emergencies.

Information and Referral: Program staff can provide information and refer you to local programs and providers in order to address any other specific needs (mental health, housing, etc.)

Economic Empowerment Workshop-Presented by Healing Finances
Abusers use money as a tool for power and control and it occurs just as frequently as physical and emotional abuse and can be an overwhelming hurdle for women wishing to lead violence-free lives. CIDFO aims to promote self-sufficiency through our financial literacy and economic empowerment workshops.

Just Write Workshop
The Just Write Workshop is facilitated by founder and best-selling author ( 8 books), speaker, and pillar in the community Dwan Abrams. Dwan has customized a workshop that focuses on expressive writing and its value in processing life experience, particular in trauma and transition. 

Workshop is free to survivors of domestic violence.
