Community Alliance Prevention Model

The Community Alliance Prevention Model is a 6-unit model of leadership training that will prepare participants to become a Purple Ally. All Purple Allies will receive a certificate of completion that can be displayed in an office, a business, or a home to show the community they are prepared support survivors and act to implement change. During training, Purple Allies will meet with victim advocates and case managers of The Purple Door who will remain a contact person for additional training, literature, and technical assistance.

Upon completion of the leadership training, a Purple Ally will have the tools to:

Support survivors of domestic and sexual violence at any step during their journey: from safety planning to maintaining positive support systems after an abusive relationship ends.

Hold perpetrators accountable for their choice to use domestic and sexual violence on their partners, families, and community. Learn how to have that conversation in a safe way.

Change and challenge a culture of violence! By changing the conversation, Purple Allies will move our community towards the prevention of domestic and sexual violence.

Anyone and everyone can become a Purple Ally:
• Corporate Level
• Small Business
• Social Service Agencies
• Counselors and Mental Health Professionals
• Government Agencies
• Education Administrations, Staff, and Students
• Faith-Based Organizations
• Community Leaders
