Helping victims of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault is one of the top priorities of the Ohio Hispanic Coalition. We have a support group and two full-time Promotoras de Salud who exclusively work with Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault cases. These Promotoras fulfill many functions while working with these cases; they become victim advocates, educators, and caseworkers to ensure that the victim has access to every legal, medical, and social service available to them. The program places an emphasis on self empowerment, allowing the victim to be in charge of their decisions, and a strong focus on informing victims of their legal rights, even if they choose not to pursue any legal action.
Services we offer include:
- Medical and legal advocacy
- Court companionship
- Assistance filing the victim compensation application
- Registering for the VINE line
- Group support
- Referrals to other necessary services.
Additional services include:
- youth & education
- general trainings
