Join the Coalition for our June Membership Meeting and hear (about Pathways home, HCSATS services for DV survivors, the King County Trans Resource and Referral Guide, and Technology Enabled Coercive Control Working Group.
“Last year, Seattle’s Human Services Department (HSD) wrote and released Pathways Home, the City’s policy framework for moving forward with the needed improvements to the homeless system. Catherine Lester, Director of Seattle’s HSD, would like to share a more in-depth briefing with CEGBV members in preparation for the significant change that will occur this year when HSD issues the Request for Proposal (RFP) for homeless services, the first time in more than a decade.”
Did you know that Harborview Center for Sexual Assault and Traumatic Stress (HCSATS) offers counseling and other services to people who’ve experienced all kinds of trauma, including domestic violence? Laura Merchant, HCSATS’ Assistant Director, will discuss general approaches to therapy with domestic violence survivors, HCSATS services, and answer questions about how survivors can connect with this great program.
King County Trans Resource and Referral Guide
The 2014 Trans Resource and Referral Guide has been updated! An awesome group of community members worked with the Coalition’s Project Coordinator, Frances Lee, to add new and expanded content and resources – it’s over twice as long as the first edition AND there’s now a web version! Frances will talk about the update, walkthrough the website, and hand out copies of the hot-off-the-presses 2017 guide.
TECC (Technology Enabled Coercive Control) Working Group
The TECC (Technology Enabled Coercive Control) Working Group, a group that addresses the abusive use of technology in our community, is partnering with local tech professionals to create a Tech Advocacy Clinic where tech savvy folks help survivors sanitize their devices, determine if they have been compromised, improve privacy settings, and help them to preserve evidence. Natalie Dolci and other members of the TECC Working Group will talk about the program and hand out a survey to attendees to get a sense of the kind of abusive use of tech they are seeing in their work with survivors.
