The Women’s and Children’s Alliance has been awarded a Community Health Improvement Fund (CHIF) Grant for $25,000 from St. Luke’s. This st. luke's chif check presentationgrant will help us launch the Worth Project, a program designed to help improve youth mental health and prevent sexual violence in schools. The goal of this project is to support a comprehensive prevention, intervention and response model in five Boise schools. This program is very important, as one in three adolescents in the United States is a victim of physical, sexual, emotional or verbal abuse from a dating partner.

By helping our youth recognize the differences between a healthy relationship and an abusive or destructive one, the Worth Project is developing essential skills to protect mental health. The anticipated result of this program is for each school to implement a curriculum and culture that supports all components of the project. This will foster safer school environments, increased support for victims, and shift school climate to support gender equitable norms.
