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 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 violence and support organizations and individuals who provide advocacy efforts, services, and assistance to victims. Everyone deserves to be safe at home. Together, we can put a stop to domestic violence in Arizona.
During Domestic Violence Awareness Month recognized in October, GOYFF prioritizes the safety and security of all Arizonans and help to bring awareness to this important issue. October 2021 marked the Seventh Annual Lighting Arizona Purple campaign. The campaign provides an opportunity to support victims, connect families and communities with essential resources, and encourage Arizonans to #EndDVinAZ.
The following grants support domestic violence awareness and prevention efforts and strengthen victim services:
