About Us

The Strong Field Project is a four-year effort by Blue Shield of California Foundation’s Blue Shield Against Violence program. Started in 2010, the Project focuses on building a stronger, more coordinated network of DV service providers in California. In collaboration with the California Partnership to End Domestic Violence, CompassPoint Nonprofit Services, Jemmott Rollins Group, and Women's Foundation of California, the Project will develop individual leadership skills, stronger organizations, and networking and expanded knowledge-sharing opportunities across California’s domestic violence field.
