The Rural Coordinated Community Response (CCR) Project

The CCR project will provide an opportunity for four rural Colorado domestic violence programs and their communities (project sites) to either develop or strengthen their community response to domestic violence through a local Coordinated Community Response Team.  CCADV will also provide technical assistance to all rural member programs on coordinated community response to domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking.

For information regarding the rural CCR Project, contact Jacque Morse, Project Manager, at 303-962-0939 (direct line) or jmorse(at)ccadv.org.

**The Promotora model is a culturally sensitive, lay health educator for the Latina community. It has been used throughout the United States to address domestic violence, chronic disease, and oral health. At the core of the Promotoras program is the recruitment of Latino community members who because they live in the community and have shared experiences, possess an intimate understanding of the community’s social networks as well as its strengths and challenges. Because of these connections and knowledge, they are well placed to function as health navigators to work within their own Latino communities to assist Public Health.
