Sexual violence is a health and human service issue that touches a multitude of individuals, organizations, and communities. Collaboration is essential to achieving desired outcomes to prevent or intervene in sexual violence. Rape crisis centers depend on cooperation and communication with other health and human service organizations to achieve common goals of reducing sexual violence. Increasing organizational effectiveness and diversifying social and systems change through maximizing relationships is an important facet of collaboration. The purpose of this research is to identify the extent of effective collaboration amongst rape crisis centers and their affiliates in the United States. Social and organizational theories and statistical analysis will be used to examine factors that contribute to low, moderate, or high levels of organizational collaboration. Through conducting this research, practical and policy implications for increasing effective collaboration between organizations in the realm of violence prevention will be challenged and identified.
