With the Camp HOPE America Program, Alliance for HOPE International has focused intensively on the correlations between witnessing domestic violence as a child and juvenile delinquency as well as adult illness, disease, and criminality. The Alliance developed Camp HOPE specifically for children and teens impacted by domestic violence. The University of Oklahoma’s Center of Applied Research for Non-Profit Organizations has hailed Camp HOPE as a “pathway of hope” for children who witness domestic violence (Hellman, Chancellor, 2014). The U.S. Department of Justice, Blue Shield of California Foundation, and many others have recognized the success of Camp HOPE. Most recently, the American Evaluation Association (www.eval.org) selected Camp HOPE and its research outcomes for special recognition in November 2016 at their national conference.
