The Vera Institute recently released a new guide for organizations that provide sexual violence, domestic violence, and disability services. This guide seeks to increase avenues for partnership and collaboration between these three types of services, recognizing that people often face co-occurring issues. The authors of the guide hope to provide background to help meet the needs of women with disabilities, who commonly face sexual and domestic violence, but often do not have access to services that can meet a combination of needs. This booklet provides information on creating safe, effective, and accessible healing services.
