SAFE FAITH UNITED HOPSCOTCH VICTIM SERVICES MODEL
OUR VICTIM SERVICE MODEL
In 2008, Safe Faith United developed a victim service model to help women of faith who are victims of domestic violence overcome victimization. The “Hopscotch” Victim Service Model supports
the notion that women of faith who are victims of domestic violence can break the cycle of victimization by following ten easy strategic steps.
The model provides a theoretical framework to help victims achieve mental endurance, self-sufficiency, spiritual support, and financial freedom.
THE ORIGIN OF THE GAME
Hopscotch began in ancient Britain during the early Roman Empire. According to history, the original Hopscotch courts were over 100 feet long. They were used for military training exercises. The
purpose of the game was to help soldiers improve their fitness, endurance, and footwork. There are many versions and design of hopscotch around the world. Our version is based on ten strategic steps
to help domestic violence victims scape the cycle of domestic abuse.
WHY DID WE CHOOSE THIS PLATFORM?
Safe Faith United choose the "Hopscotch" game as a platform to create a victim service framework because this concept is nearly known world-wide by individuals from various cultural
Therefore, victims and survivors from various countries, including the United States of America can identify with the rules of the game.
