DOR National MeetingThe Resource Sharing Project is providing this unique 2.5-day training on enhancing sexual assault services exclusively to OVW Rural Grantees that are dual/multi-service agencies. This national meeting will bring you together with your peers from dual/multiservice advocacy agencies to discuss aspects of providing innovative services to rural sexual assault survivors. Participants will learn how to use their strengths to craft individualized plans to confront sexual violence in their communities. Together, we will identify the barriers in rural communities and build on our strengths to create meaningful solutions for dual/multiservice advocacy agencies. There are only 100 seats available for this conference. Each Rural Grant (lead grantee and sub-grantees combined) may send four attendees. DOR State Coalition InstituteAfter the training, we invite state coalition staff to stay for the DOR State Coalition Institute, a half-day meeting to discuss methods and strategies in implementation of statewide sexual assault service enhancement projects. We will aid state coalitions in guiding member centers through the strengths-based assessments, adapting the Deepening Our Roots curriculum, and creating customized strategies to overcome the cultural and organizational barriers to high-quality rural sexual assault services in dual/multi-service agencies. The Institute must have a minimum of four coalitions in attendance.
