            What Is Delta?
 A Campaign to Change the Attitudes
   and Beliefs That Cause Intimate
 Partner Domestic Violence Through
Building Alliances With Neighborhood

PRIMARY PREVENTION
       HOW DOES IT WORK?
  Primary Prevention seeks to reduce
the overall likelihood that anyone will
 become a victim or a perpetrator by
creating conditions that make violence
       less likely to ever occur.
THE DELTA PROJECT of
PINELLAS COUNTY
 The Delta Project focus is on primary
  prevention and works to end intimate
  partner violence before it begins with
  Pinellas County.
 The project is a collaboration between the
  Pinellas County Domestic Violence Task-
  Force and the Florida Coalition Against
  Domestic Violence.
THE DELTA PROJECT
HOW IS IT FUNDED?
   The Florida Coalition Against Domestic
    Violence(FCADV) received a three year
    grant from the Centers for Disease Control
    and Prevention(CDC). FCADV then funded
    six community Coordinated Community
    Response Teams(CCR's) with certified
    Domestic Violence Centers serving as fiscal
    agents and staffing the project. The Pinellas
    County Domestic Violence Task Force is the
    CCR and The Haven is the fiscal agent and
    staffing agent.
