Abstract

Victims of domestic violence experience a wide range of challenges as they leave their perpetrators and regain a sense of their own power (Candela, 2016). These can include engagement with the courts related to divorce and/or child custody, problems maintaining financial stability, and the need to manage other personal responsibilities (Campbell, 2017). The Morlock Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving quality of life by connecting individuals to resources. The Foundation offers crisis support and phone-based case management services to victims of domestic violence and others in need. This poster highlights the Foundation’s work with Sally (name changed to protect confidentiality) to determine its success in helping her to secure her own home and rebuild her life. Using single subject design, this study will assess the effectiveness of staff interventions using task achievement and goal attainment scaling.
