Intimate Violence Enhanced Service Team (InVEST) was created specifically to reduce and prevent domestic violence homicides in Florida. InVEST partnerships have implemented batterer accountability measures and provided enhanced advocacy for more than 3,000 survivors per year who are at risk of being murdered by their intimate partner. Since the program’s inception in 2009, there have not been any homicides of InVEST participants. This is particularly notable since InVEST participants enter the program based on their experience of evidence-based, high-risk behaviors perpetrated against them by their partner or ex-partner. Miami- Dade Advocate’s for Victims-Safespace South, in collaboration with the Homestead Police Department and S.O.S, have initiated services that model the InVEST team in responding to domestic violence cases. Please join us in learning about InVEST services, high-risk indicators, risk assessments & coordinated community response.
