2014-2015 Virginia Statewide Needs Assessment on Underserved Victims of Sexual & Domestic Violence

In 2014-2015, the Partnership for Community Defined Solutions2 conducted a statewide needs assessment which included a survey of service providers and a series of focus group interviews with service providers and survivors of sexual and domestic violence (SDV) in Virginia. The purpose of these activities was to assess the needs of underserved victims and the barriers they face to accessing services that increase victim safety and offender accountability.  See the full report for a summary of the project, including findings and next steps.
