We currently serve well over a million employees in the companies that are involved with CAEPV in the US. In addition, we have hundreds of thousands served through our sister alliance in the UK, and our member company in Turkey. Because of the way that our program outreaches through workplace programs, it is difficult to get an actual number of people served -- likely it is many more than we know.
We are proud to have been part of creating "corporate alliance" models in Turkey, the UK, Australia, and Israel. We have also assisted in the US in creating versions of the model in North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, and other states. We are gratified every time someone sees the value in this sort of partnership model and in the opportunities afforded when businesses work together to address domestic violence.
How many people have benefited from your program over the last year? Which element of the program proved itself most effective?
Over a million people have been reached by our programs in the past year in the US alone. The element of our program that has been most effective is the "personalized networking" component that is a part of the program where our companies can contact us directly to ask about a workplace problem, ask for help with training, or ask how to connect with another member company. It is that personal "central connecting point" that makes this initiative successful and keeps the businesses engaged and interested in moving forward.
