IDENTIFY, INVESTIGATE and RESPOND to Abuse Against
Older Individuals and Individuals with Disabilities
This initiative was made possible with grant funding from the Office on Violence Against Women of the U.S.
Department of Justice (Grant #2004-EW-AX-K008). Spearheaded by Day One - The Sexual Assault and
Trauma Resource Center and its partners - the RI Coalition Against Domestic Violence, PAL: An Advocacy
Organization for Families and People with Disabilities, the Alliance for Better Long Term Care, and the Elder
Justice Unit of the RI Attorney General's Office - this initiative provided training opportunities for law
enforcement, prosecutors, and other criminal justice professionals. The primary training topics prepared criminal justice professionals to identify, investigate and prosecute instances of abuse, neglect,
exploitation and violence, both domestic and sexual, against the elderly and individuals with disabilities.

Advocacy Collaboration Training
ACT to End Violence Against Women with Disabilities
Day one, in collaboration with the Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence and PAL: An Advocacy Organization for Families and People with Disabilities, planned a Train-the-Trainers program for Rhode Island professionals and advocates in the fields of domestic violence, sexual assault, and disability services.

The workshops consisted of interactive sessions to give participants a comprehensive understanding of domestic violence, sexual assault, disability and their intersection. One of the most important components of the workshop was the opportunity to bring together professionals in the fields of sexual assault, domestic violence and disability advocacy for the first time to network, problem-solve and build partnerships for prevention and safety planning. Additionally, information on how to effectively facilitate discussion and train on these issues was an integral part of the Train-the-Trainers program.

One of the main training materials, given to participants, was a Resource Guide of services available to individuals with disabilities, and those who work with them. This Resource Guide is used by Rhode Island professionals in the domestic violence, sexual assault, and disability fields to make referrals, obtain information, and further collaborative efforts being made by all those trying to better serve people in our communities. We provided comprehensive agency information including agency hours, languages spoken, and brief descriptions of any advocacy, counseling, or direct services available to individuals with disabilities.

This project is supported by Grant #2004-FW-AX-K021, an Education and Technical Assistance Grant to End Violence Against Women with Disabilities, awarded by the Office of Violence Against Women, Office of Justice Programs, United States Department of Justice.
