Collaborative Community Response (CCR) integrates government, private, and nonprofit organizations in a common goal of effectively responding to domestic violence, teen dating violence, and sexual assault. CCR’s are an important and effective strategy to ensure survivors of violence, their children and other dependents receive the comprehensive support they need in a timely and sensitive manner. While a CCR may have many forms depending on the jurisdiction and needs of the community, it commonly involves participation by the court system, health care providers, law enforcement, legal services, victim advocates, schools, faith communities, cultural groups, and other organizations and stakeholders.
