In developing the resource guide, the partners agreed that the resources should not be limited to domestic violence service providers, and would instead be holistic, providing a range of service options for victims and survivors.

By expanding the scope of the resource guide to the full range of service options, MayView staff were better able to work in partnership with victims and develop a patient driven approach to addressing domestic violence. With trained advocates available on-site the collaborative hoped to eliminate the need to refer patients out to a third party, unless it was for a specific service. The guide itself was based on the resource guide Next Door Solutions provides their own advocates and was customized by MayView staff.
