Description
Rural advocacy programs typically have large spread-out service areas and a small staff to provide services to survivors of sexual and domestic violence. This reality for rural programs can make it difficult to provide outreach and services to all of the many small communities within the larger service area. This webinar will focus on mobile advocacy, hiring practices and organizational culture, and outreach to rural communities. Join Leah Green from the Resource Sharing Project to learn more about methods of structuring rural programs in order to best serve the whole community.

Description
Despite the prevalence of stalking—a crime affecting some 6-7.5 million people at some time in their lives—advocates and other allied professions responsible for working with stalking victims may feel hampered by lack of training and resources to address the crime of stalking in a comprehensive manner. This webinar will address common tactics used by perpetrators, identify stalking-specific risk assessment tools to better determine the level of threat to victims, identify the intersection of stalking and sexual violence, and discuss effective safety planning strategies particular to survivors in rural areas. Please join Leah Green from the Resource Sharing Project and Jennifer Landhuis from the Stalking Prevention Awareness & Resource Center (SPARC)  to learn more about stalking in rural communities.

Description
Rural communities have a much higher percentage of older adults than urban communities. Are you curious why they aren’t walking in your doors asking for services? Your program is not alone. Sexual violence does happen to older adults and not surprisingly there are barriers for those survivors in seeking services. Join Leah Green from the Resource Sharing Project to learn more about how to support older adult survivors in rural communities. Topics will include risk factors, accessibility, communication, and why rural communities are poised to help this vulnerable population.
