This fact sheet describes the interagency demonstration project, referred to as the Green Book Initiative, which supports the implementation of the recommended policy and practice guidelines featured in the Green Book. Within selected jurisdictions, the Initiative fosters and enhances collaborations among domestic violence service providers; child protective services; juvenile, family, and criminal courts; and community groups, with the goal of providing more effective ways to achieve safety and well-being for intimate partner victims and their children. The guidelines recommend ways to develop and implement cross-system policy and staff development, improve procedures within each system to better achieve safety and prevent further abuse of adult and child victims, hold batterers accountable, and seek greater community resources to serve victims and their families.
