SAN ANTONIO (October 30, 2019) — Today, the City of San Antonio released its Comprehensive Plan on Collaborative Strategies to Prevent, Combat, and Respond to Domestic Violence. The Comprehensive Plan looks to create long term strategies to assist the community in understanding the root causes of domestic abuse and stop violence before it starts by engaging city, county, and community resources.



Councilwoman Rebecca Viagran praised the efforts of the committee overseeing the comprehensive plan for conducting community town halls and taking constituent concerns to heart. “We’ve heard you, we are hearing you, and we are making moves because of you so that no life that has been taken or violence that has been endured will be in vain,” said Councilwoman Viagran.



The Domestic Violence Comprehensive Plan Identifies Six Goals in five years:

  1. Disrupt the developmental pathways toward partner violence
  2. Teach safe and healthy relationship skills
  3. Increase cross-sector partnerships and transparency
  4. Coordinate and streamline access to services and trauma-informed response systems/li>
  5. Support survivors to increase safety and lessen harms
  6. Reduce access to weapons and increase availability of rehabilitative programs
