Abstract

This column highlights lessons learned from the Safer Futures model, which resulted from an effort to build successful partnerships between health care providers and intimate partner violence (IPV) agencies using a colocated advocate model. Using a “no wrong door” approach, the goal of Safer Futures is to increase access to IPV services for pregnant and newly parenting women. A demonstration project of the Safer Futures model was funded through the Pregnancy Assistance Fund in five different locations in Oregon. Here we present a brief description of the Safer Futures model and focus on the lessons learned during implementation to inform practice.
