According to the website for New York’s CENTER FOR COURT INNOVATION:
The goal of the Domestic Violence Court Technical Assistance Project, an initiative of the Center for Court Innovation, is to help court systems enhance their handling of domestic violence cases. The project is designed to guide communities through the planning and implementation of a new domestic violence court or the enhancement of an existing domestic violence court—and to equip planners with skills and knowledge to ensure the ongoing effectiveness of the court. The Center is dedicated to offering assistance that is responsive to the needs, resources, and challenges of our clients.
