Is pleased to announce an incredible collaborative opportunity for programs interested in working with survivors with disabilities!

Currently, there is no known competency-based training material designed for SA and DV professionals to better equip programs to serve survivors with disabilities.  In order to create an effective and sustainable training module, they are reaching out to SA and DV providers across the state to participate as pilot sites for their training.  These locations would be required to participate in the following activities:

  • Commit to having all direct service and prevention staff complete an online needs assessment
  • Commit to participation of select staff members for  in-person or phone interviews
  • Participate in the training developed from the needs assessment/interview findings (one 6-8 hour training at your facility)
  • Provide feedback for facilitators through surveys and follow up interviews

They are interested in working with both dual and stand-alone programs.  Ideally, they would like to have 6 pilot sites to work with (they would like to form partnerships with 6 pilot sites to help them…) and help them develop this one-of-a-kind training for the state of North Carolina.  Please contact Liz Constantinou, VSP, Advocate for Individuals with Disabilities, Rape Crisis Center | Coastal Horizons Center, Inc. at 910-392-7185 if you have any questions or are interested in participating in this training opportunity.
