The Intstitute for Community Peace (formerly the National Funding 
Collaborative on Violence Prevention) has funded and supported eight 
collaboratives throughout the country who have worked on a wide 
variety of violence prevention issues over the past seven years.  At 
least two the collaboratives have focused on domestice violence and 
family violence prevention.  These are community driven collaboratives 
who have a good mix of service providers and grassroots folks and all 
have a city-wide or county-wide focus.  A good mix of urban and rural.  
The Institute has done substantial national and local evaluation on all 
of these collaboratives over the years and have lots of lessons learned 
and information on what these folks have done and how they've done it.  

Their website is www.peacebeyondviolence.org.  Hope this is helpful.
