Domestic Violence Program
Neighborhood Health Plan is committed to raising awareness of domestic violence (DV) and helping victims in need.
Domestic violence, also known as Intimate Partner Violence (IPV), refers to a range of controlling and abusive behaviors committed by one's partner, spouse, boyfriend/girlfriend, or significant other. The abuse may include physical, emotional, or sexual violence as well as attempts to limit the victim's choices around financial resources and cut the victim off from work, family, and other connections.
Abuse can happen to anyone, regardless of age, race, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, or income. No matter what, no one deserves to be hurt by anyone.
Domestic Violence Prevention
Domestic Violence prevention is an important part of the NHP Community Benefits Program, and is in line with its mission to identify, develop, and support community resources to improve members' health and meet the needs of the underserved. As part of our multi-year DV initiative, NHP has focused on three areas: funding of existing efforts, developing new programs, and coalition building.
