Promising Practices in Serving Crime Victims With Disabilities

SafePlace, a domestic violence and sexual assault services center in Texas that created its Disability Services Program in 1996, has been awarded funding to help 10 victim assistance organizations across the country develop promising practices and models for serving victims with disabilities. SafePlace has competitively selected the subgrantees that will develop or enhance their ability to provide comprehensive, accessible services, and it will provide funding, training, and technical assistance to the 10 program sites. The sites are Worcester, Massachusetts; San Diego, California; Ulster County, New York; Doylestown, Pennsylvania; Tallahassee, Florida; Lafourche Parish, Louisiana; Atlanta, Georgia; Northhampton, Massachusetts; Carbondale, Illinois; and Tucson, Arizona.
