BRAVE offers a comprehensive culturally-sensitive, survivor-centered model of intensive case management and interagency collaboration tailored for survivors of sexual crimes. Our program enhances crime victim services to better address trauma, utilize key community partners, and actively engage those for whom access to services has been a barrier; as well as address factors pertaining to victimization, trauma and substance abuse; with a focus on intimate partner violence (IPV), domestic violence (DV); sexual assault; and human trafficking. Facilitated access and retention support is maximized our tailored menu of wraparound services, and our evidence-based practices address issues key to the survival of our clients.
Under the BRAVE initiative, we provide access to safe and appropriate shelters; individual, family and group counseling; and reunite youth survivors with their families when appropriate. Further, BRAVE increases the safety, social and emotional well-being and self-sufficiency of crime victims, helping them build permanent connections with families, communities, schools and other positive social networks.
