The AT THE TABLE PROJECT, a partnership project ofWomen Together/Mujeres Unidas, The Hidalgo County District Attorney’s Office, San Juan Police Department, and the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office, and in collaboration with the Hidalgo County Family Violence Task Force and the UTRGV Social Work Department held a special meeting on March 22nd at the UTRGV Annex Building in Edinburg.

The purpose of the meeting was to find out what services are already being provided to victims of family violence by the different agencies in our community. It also gave attendees the opportunity to discuss what is still needed in order to improve and strengthen our existing Family Violence Task and services to victims. There were approximately 90 people who attended the meeting. Attendees were from various disciplines to include: law enforcement, attorney’s, prosecutors, medical personnel, mental health professionals, victim advocates, clergy, educators, among others. It is the goal of the project to improve our Coordinated Community Response (CCR) to better assist victims of family violence in Hidalgo County.
