4:00 am – 5:30 am ChST

Advocates working within domestic violence and sexual assault programs often connect survivors with other benefits such as welfare and affordable housing to bridge the gap from living with abuser to living on their own. When serving survivors with disabilities, there are additional services that a survivor might need assistance accessing, such as federal disability benefits and supportive housing. This webinar will provide information to domestic violence and sexual assault providers on how to connect survivors with disabilities to these additional, necessary resources.  as well as how to ensure that those benefits and resources are protected even when an individual with a disability is employed as a part of the movement.
