Community Solutions is a non-profit organization that works with victims and survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking. The agency provides programs and support for children, individuals, and families in San Benito and Santa Clara counties. The macro level problem is people lacing education and awareness of the types of abuse which can potentially increase the abuse rates in the community. The micro level problem is cases or incidents of abuse or assault are unreported. The project purpose is to provide the community with an online resource where people can educate themselves and increase their awareness on topics of abuse, trauma, wellness services and other prevention support programs. Using online platforms such as Facebook is one of the few ways to create an outreach effort to help the community with resourceful information and tips on abuse and assault. This capstone project provides information from Community Solutions with resources, outreach programs and support for the community for those who have been victims, and to educate and create awareness within the community. This agency will continue to hold bi-weekly Facebook live segments to educate and support the community.
