The purpose of this issue brief is to provide information that can be used by F2F grantees to expand, improve and complement their current practices to respond to the needs of families experiencing domestic violence that are in the child welfare system. The information and recommendations in this issue brief are based on five focus groups that were conducted with administrators, team decision meeting facilitators, front line staff, domestic violence programs, state coalitions and lawyers, foster care recruiters, trainers, liaisons, community residents and parents in F2F sites in Detroit, MI, Colorado Springs, CO, Cleveland, OH, San Jose and San Francisco CA. Approximately 90 people participated in the focus groups. Additionally, the Family Violence Prevention fund attended one F2F fatherhood meeting in Louisville, Kentucky. (Author abstract)
