Looking for more resources or guide included access for violence against women?

You have come to the right place.

Welcome to the AccessAbility Partnership project page. This project is funded by The Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) in Washington DC. The purpose of the project is to provide access to services for survivors with disabilities and Deaf and Hard of Hearing individuals, to reduce violence against individuals and to support survivors of domestic violence (DV), dating violence, sexual assault (SA), intimate partner violence (IPV) and stalking.

This unique collaboration is between three San Diego agencies: Center for Community Solutions (CCS), San Diego Regional Center (SDRC), and Deaf Community Services (DCS). The goal of the AccessAbility Partnership is to improve DV/SA services by increasing accessibility to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault who are Deaf/Hard of Hearing and/or living with Intellectual developmental disabilities (IDD). The Partnership strives to create empathetically and empowering services that are safe and confidential in trauma-informed and culturally responsive ways that ensure equality and equity to all.
