The article presents a study on the challenges faced by community collaborative in handling public issues in the U.S. The social network analysis and hierarchical linear modeling were used to be able to determine the strategies used by organizations and public agencies in solving a public concern. The collaboration among stakeholders have been viewed important to be able to efficiently handle the domestic violence and to promote unity in the community. This suggests the importance of collaboration among team members in the organization.
