This Special Collection supports advocates and agencies seeking to build their capacity to provide accessible and inclusive services to trans and non-binary survivors.</p> <p>This collection offers guidance on how to provide accessible, culturally responsive, and affirming services to survivors of all genders. It includes resources that explain the importance of pronouns and outline some key concepts and terms relating to gender identity and expression. Additionally, this collection cites recent research illustrating the broad scope of violence against trans individuals and communities, particularly for people who live at the intersections of multiple forms of oppression, and addresses the failure of systems to properly support survivors in these communities. It directs service providers to some helpful tools and guidance for promoting inclusivity and advocating for trans survivors within domestic and sexual violence organizations. Lastly, this collection also provides resources for survivors.</p> <p>This collection draws heavily from the work of <a href="http://forge-forward.org/">FORGE</a>, a national transgender anti-violence organization that provides direct services to trans survivors of domestic and sexual violence, as well as training and technical assistance to service providers around the country. Visit their <a href="http://forge-forward.org/">website</a> for more information and resources on serving trans survivors of domestic and sexual violence.</p> </div> Tue, 13 Jun 2017 15:52:01 +0000 berdman 9434 at https://vawnet.org Open Doors: Domestic Violence Shelter Development https://vawnet.org/sc/open-doors-domestic-violence-shelter-development <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Open Doors: Domestic Violence Shelter Development</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/ckeene" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">ckeene</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Thu, 08/11/2016 - 09:05</span> <span class="a2a_kit a2a_kit_size_20 addtoany_list" data-a2a-url="https://vawnet.org/sc/open-doors-domestic-violence-shelter-development" data-a2a-title="Open Doors: Domestic Violence Shelter Development"><a class="a2a_button_facebook"></a><a class="a2a_button_twitter"></a><a class="a2a_button_linkedin"></a><a class="a2a_dd addtoany_share" href="https://www.addtoany.com/share#url=https%3A%2F%2Fvawnet.org%2Fsc%2Fopen-doors-domestic-violence-shelter-development&amp;title=Open%20Doors%3A%20Domestic%20Violence%20Shelter%20Development"></a></span> <div class="field field--name-field-featured-collection-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/sc_page/public/assets/images/2016-10/SCfeature-opendoors.jpg?itok=GUgzRZmC" width="399" height="366" alt="3 open doors" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-sc-page" /> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-published-date field--type-datetime field--label-inline clearfix"> <div class="field__label">Published</div> <div class="field__item">March 01, 2014</div> </div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>The NRCDV receives a large number of technical assistance requests related to domestic violence program development.

As the movement to end domestic violence embraces this concept and explores the implementation of effective prevention programming, it is necessary to first examine the capacity of our networks, communities, and agencies to take on this work. The Missouri Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence defines organizational capacity for primary prevention as “the agency’s ability to support and implement domestic and sexual violence prevention efforts” (<a href="http://calcasa.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/Embracing-Prevention-as-Social-Change-How-to-Build-Organizational-Capacity-for-Prevention.pdf" target="_blank">2012</a>). When an agency fully embraces primary prevention, the work becomes part of the organizational culture, existing in all departments, volunteers, board members, and administrators (<a href="http://preventconnect.org/2012/04/building-organizational-capacity-for-prevention/" target="_blank">PreventConnect, 2012</a>). It all begins with systems change within our organizations.</p> <p>This collection provides materials to support the work of building this capacity for primary prevention work – primarily on the organizational level, but also as it relates to assessing and influencing change in individuals, communities, and institutions. The resources offered as part of this collection describe lessons learned from the CDC’s DELTA PREP project, provide capacity building guidelines, and review the necessary steps of readiness assessment, program development, training, evaluation, and planning for sustainability when it comes to implementing effective strategies to prevent domestic violence.</p> <p>This collection was developed by the <a href="http://www.nrcdv.org/" target="_blank">National Resource Center on Domestic Violence</a>.
