Making Domestic Violence Services Accessible to Individuals with Limited English Proficiency: A Planning Tool for Advocacy Organizations

General Material
Training Tools
Published Date
January, 2015

"Creative and dedicated sexual and domestic violence programs and advocates have always found ways to improve our work toward safety, healing, and justice for those harmed by violence, and to end and prevent violence at home and in our communities. If we invest in a comprehensive, proactive approach to providing assistance for individuals with limited English proficiency (LEP), all survivors will have greater access to critical services and greater success in addressing the violence in their lives."

This toolkit bridges the gap between the laws, rules, and standards of services; and the effort necessary - community assessments, program policy, staff training, etc. - to develop and implement language access services for survivors with limited English proficiency (LEP).
