Change a Life is the result of many contributors’ ideas and the best and promising practices in supporting children exposed to domestic violence.

We would like to thank Casey Keene, VAWnet Manger at the National Resources Center on Domestic Violence, who shared her expertise and personal experiences throughout the development of this project. In addition, we would like to thank Professor Renee McDonald for her knowledge and expertise in helping us develop and refine the key concepts and messages for the website. We would also like to acknowledge Ruby White Starr of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges and Professor Sandra Graham Bermann at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor for the audio and video content.

Professor Jeffrey L. Edleson, Jennifer Witt, and Ericka Kimball of the Minnesota Center Against Violence and Abuse (MINCAVA) were the primary staff who worked on the original content for this project. This website design was developed by Kristin Dean and Karen Sheahan with the assistance of Kevin Bullock, the MINCAVA systems manager. Finally, we thank all of the people who provided feedback on these materials.
