Systems change is a shift in the way that a community makes decisions about policies, programs, and in the way services are delivered to individuals. To undertake systems change, collaborative bridges must be built among multiple agencies, community members, and other stakeholders. Facilitating systems change in the response to domestic violence is of central importance to our agency in order to ensure survivors are able to access the services they need most, which can range from legal services to housing. Systems Change work for our agency includes begin a core member of La Red Latina and participating in the organization of its annual conference against domestic and gender violence supporting the Latino communities, offering education, prevention, and counseling services at the SF Mexican Consulate on a monthly basis for the past few years, and working with other community agencies to improve services the SFPD provides to survivors with limited English proficiency.
