Culturally Specific Services
Culturally specific services are designed to work with and/or for a target population, such as women of color, immigrant women, women of different religious/spiritual beliefs, women with low incomes, women with disabilities, women who are deaf or hard of hearing, survivors who identify as LGBTQI and many others. We know that one agency cannot meet the many needs of one person and that culture plays a large role in how survivors heal from trauma. This database is a resource guide for advocates and survivors to locate culturally specific services to address the intersections and needs in the lives of survivors. We have committed ourselves to learning about agencies that provide culturally specific services and listing them here in hopes that we can assist you in your work to help survivors accomplish their goals.
The listing of an agency does not signify an endorsement by ODVN. The resources should be researched to ensure that it meets the needs of the individual. This database will continue to grow as we find out about resources. ODVN does not guarantee that all services listed under agency are still operational. Please contact the agency to ensure that the program still exists and to determine the requirements to participate. We will do our best to ensure that the information is accurate and up to date.
The caucuses and task forces are statewide collaborations of advocates and service providers who are working with survivors in underserved communities.
Information about culturally specific services can obtained through these collaborations:
- Disabilities Task Force
- Immigrant Women’s Task Force
- LGBTQI Task Force
- Women of Color Caucus
If you know of an agency, community center or place of worship that is working with members of underserved communities or to obtain information about the caucuses and task forces, please contact the Outreach Coordinator at 614-781-9651, ext. 234.
