DELTA Impact Prevention Project

NCCADV believes in the importance of prevention. Increasing awareness of domestic violence is an important first step. But to prevent people from perpetrating domestic violence in the first place, we need to address the root causes of violence. NCCADV works to address these root causes at the state level and by building capacity for local prevention practitioners.

NCCADV participates in a prevention program called DELTA Impact, funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). NCCADV’s DELTA Impact project aims to improve the following root causes of violence:

  • Gender norms,
  • Norms about aggression,
  • Family economic stress,
  • Coordination of community resources, and
  • Family support and connectedness.

NCCADV’s state-level work includes two main projects related to these root causes. One of our projects is to increase access to paid family leave. The other focuses on helping organizations improve policies and become more trauma-informed.

NCCADV’s DELTA Impact project also supports local work in middle schools and colleges in Wilmington, North Carolina. These programs promote gender equity, safe school environments, and bystander intervention.

NCCADV has participated in the CDC’s DELTA program since it began in 2002. NCCADV’s DELTA Impact project builds on our history of working with diverse partners to create community- and societal-level change.
