If you ever bought a "Stop Family Violence" stamp from the post office, you helped to fund the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' work to combat domestic violence. Some of that money went to nine demonstration projects that ran for three years and aimed to increase our understanding of how best to work with children and teens who witness violence at home.
