Keys 4 Deaf Access Project
Through a continuation grant funded from the Department of Justice Office on Violence Against Women the Keys 4 Deaf Access Project will add an additional partner to the collaboration. Cleveland Rape Crisis Center joins the Domestic Violence & Child Advocacy Center, the Cleveland Division of Police and our Community Center for the Deaf to provide advocacy, outreach and training to the D/deaf and Hard of Hearing Community in Cuyahoga County. In addition to working with our partner agencies to ensure services are being provided to victims and survivors in a culturally competent manner, we will provide additional training and education to social service agencies and the criminal justice system as well as others who interface with D/deaf survivors impacted by intimate partner violence, sexual assault, stalking, and dating violence.
