Mary Byron Foundation for Domestic Violence Supports Innovations for Breaking the Cycle of Violence.
The Mary Byron Project created the Celebrating Solutions Awards to showcase and applaud local innovations that demonstrate promise in breaking the cycle of violence. The Project selects programs that can serve as models for the nation and offers cash awards in recognition of their pioneering efforts. There are two stages to the awards process. Stage one requires submission of a nomination form, program outline, and release. The program’s primary focus must address the issue of intimate partner violence. If the nomination advances to the second stage, applicants will be asked to provide additional information and letters of support. Nominations are judged by a panel of experts in criminal justice, health care, and public policy, and other disciplines that address intimate partner violence.
