Bridge to Safety

People with disabilities are at higher risk of experiencing abuse and/or assault than the rest of the population. Therefore, Able SC is excited about the collaboration they have formed with Sexual Trauma Services of the Midlands and YWCA of the Upper Lowlands. This project, funded through the US Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women, seeks to create permanent changes within all three organizations that result in accessible, safe, and effective services for people with disabilities who have been impacted by interpersonal violence. Together, representatives from all three organizations share their expertise and knowledge with each other to build capacity within each organization. Able SC is eager to be partnering with two other reputable organizations to remove barriers and implement solutions so that people with disabilities who have experienced interpersonal violence have access to the appropriate services to heal.

This project was supported by Grant No. 2017-FW-AX-K001 awarded by the Office on Violence Against Women, U.S. Department of Justice.
