Hosted By: Iowa Coalition Against Sexual Assault
Time: 5:00 AM ChST
Description: In our shelters and community based advocacy programs we are able to provide necessary and important services for those who experience domestic violence. However, survivors of sexual violence have unaddressed housing needs, particularly in rural communities.
