Immigrant Survivors Project

The South Carolina Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault (SCCADVASA), the South Carolina Victim Assistance Network’s Immigrant Victim Network (SCIVN) and PASOs previously worked on a project to strengthen services for immigrant survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault in South Carolina. The Strengthening Services for Immigrant Survivors Project objectives included:

  1. Addressing systemic barriers that affected immigrant survivors that needed culturally and linguistically appropriate services for domestic violence and/or sexual assault by developing and disseminating a set of best practices.
  2. Sharing creative solutions that successfully decreased barriers to access and encouraged immigrant survivors to utilize domestic violence and sexual assault programs.
  3. Initiating a cultural shift in the way that services were delivered to immigrant survivors in South Carolina by providing education, project support and individualized technical assistance to domestic violence and sexual assault programs.
