Currently, JDI is comprised of over 60 member organizations that provide crisis services to and advocate for the rights of victims of sexual and domestic violence to ensure the safety and well being of victims and their children throughout the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Since its inception, JDI has served as a central point of contact for survivors of rape and battering, victims' advocates, sexual and domestic violence service providers and other health, social service, law enforcement and criminal justice professionals. JDI's four primary activities are: 1. Networking and Support for victims, their families and for professionals working with victims, perpetrators, and their children; 2. Technical Assistance and Quality Improvement; 3. Policy Development; and 4. Education and Training. Together, the JDI member organizations comprise Massachusetts' statewide network of sexual and domestic violence victim services programs that provide safe shelter and advocacy for victims going through the medical, legal and other systems. As the statewide resource center for sexual assault and domestic violence, Jane Doe Inc. provides technical assistance, training, and information and facilitates communication among the membership by hosting forums and distributing printed resources. Jane Doe Inc.'s partnerships with state and federal government, elected officials and national organizations influence and shape public policy on both the legislative and regulatory fronts to advance a responsive legislative agenda. Similarly we work with the business community, academia, media, health care community and others to enhance a coordinated community response to these matters of public health and public safety.
