What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

The TFFV operates five basic programs designed to address the needs of survivors, abused children, entire families and batterers. These programs are the Courthouse Advocacy Program, Legal Emergency Assistance Program, Children's Advocacy Program, Ending Violence through Education, and When Family Violence Comes to Work. In total, TFFV serves over 6,000 cleints per year in three languages: English, Spanish and Russian. We reserve several positions within each program for bi-lingual advocates.
The Courthouse Advocacy Program is the front door to the civil legal system for thousands of victims of domestic violence and abused chldren who need legal protection in Milwaukee County. TFFV is the only domestic violence program in Milwaukee that helps victims obtain restraining orders and injunctions to protect themselves from perpetrators of domestic violence. Each client works with the advocates to create a safety plan, completes the paperwork for petitioning the court for civil orders of protection, is accompanies our cleints to court, and provides them with access to on-going services to meet their emergent needs related to escaping domestic violence. The Legal Emergency Assistance Program (LEAP advocates provide one-on-one advocacy and support to victims who need our hel250 clients per year. LEAP advocates help victims find and access shelter, find and maintain safe housing, provide emergency food, help with finding child care, provide access to counseling, provide referrals to health care, and arrange civil legal services through partnership wit Legal Action of Wisconsin. The merger of victim advocacy and case management services, restraining order assistance and civil legal services has been a successful combination in LEAproviding coordination among the CART membership, offering direct case management services for families affected by domestic violence and staffing support groups for chlild witnesses.
Ending Violence through Education (EVE)started out of research that stated most men in batterers treatment were still with the partner against whom they had been violent, and most victims in these circumstances indicate that they do not want their families broken apart, but they do want the violence to stoeducation and support services for victims of substantiated cases of domestic violence and their children; missed opportunities for identifying and helping children who have witnessed the violence; and dearth of parenting classes tailored for victims of domestic violence.
When Family Violence Comes to Work began after one third of Task Force clients reported losing their jobs because of family violence. The cost to employers is staggering. This program includes a consultation resource and education program for employers in our community who are committed to keeping victims safe in the one place where batterers know they can find them. TFFV provides employment advocacy to more than 300 victims of domestic violence annually.
