History of the Program

The Promise Place was started in 1984 by the Human Services Council of Fayette County when concerns arose about the domestic violence situation in their County. At first the Fayette Family Task Force only focused on child abuse. However, in April 1985, the Fayette Family Task Force expanded the program and began to address the issue of battered women as well. With the concerns and solutions that were sought Promise Place as its seen as today, was officially formed fully in 1987. While the program started with just two women and a pager and multiple volunteers it has now reach thousands of people and has hundreds of people who officially work for them. It is also an inspiration for other such programs seek the help in this situation.

Reason for Choosing this Program

the reason I chose this this program is because as an IO psychologist it can affect the workplace. If somebody in the workforce is a victim of domestic abuse they will not be able to perform at their best plus it will affect the company and the people that work within it. If people are constantly coming and going and not have a place to live both them and the people they work with or not be able to fully function. as somebody who is both looking out for the company and work company I have to everyone is doing well.
