In 2010, two Long Island-based nonprofit organizations working with abuse victims—the Nassau County Coalition Against Domestic Violence and the Coalition Against Child Abuse and Neglect—co-located to better serve their clients. Co-location resulted in programmatic synergy, co-trainings and greater information sharing. With programmatic collaboration already in place, the two organizations decided that by merging, they could also produce long-term operational efficiencies by combining administration functions and systems. A grant from the SeaChange-Lodestar Fund for Nonprofit Collaboration helped the newly formed Safe Center LI finance costs associated with the merger.
