The Governor's Office of Youth, Faith and Family (GOYFF) is committed to supporting services for victims and families that have experienced domestic and/or sexual violence. Through a trauma-informed lens, we develop and implement numerous grant funding opportunities, training, outreach, and prevention efforts that strengthen our communities and connect Arizonans to critical resources.
Domestic and/or sexual violence does not discriminate. It is an issue affecting Arizonans in all communities, regardless of age, race, gender, economic status, religion, nationality, or educational background.
Together, we can enhance education, prevention, and intervention efforts around domestic and/or sexual violence, and support organizations and individuals who provide advocacy, services, and assistance to victims.
During Domestic Violence Awareness Month recognized in October, GOYFF prioritizes the safety and security of all Arizonans and helps to bring awareness to this important issue. October 2023 marks the 9th Lighting Arizona Purple campaign, an opportunity to support victims and connect families and communities with essential local resources. Everyone deserves to be safe at home. Together, we can #EndDVinAZ.
