Abuse and Neglect
SafePlace produces materials, videos, curriculum and handouts for service providers, caregivers and community groups with information about sexual and domestic violence. These brochures and toolkits offer information about disability awareness and education of people with disabilities regarding violence. This site provides the following toolkits upon request including Stop the Violence, Break the Silence Training Guide & Resource Kit, Balancing the Power: Creating a Crisis Center Accessible to People with Disabilities and Beyond Labels: Working with Abuse Survivors with Mental Illness Symptoms or Substance Abuse Issues.
Accessing safety is an initiative established in 2005 for technical assistance and training to meet the needs of women with disabilities and deaf women who have suffered abuse. Each web site section covers a different topic such as creating change, understanding disability, responding to and understanding violence.
