The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant to design a Spanish support group program for survivors of intimate partner violence (IPV). An extensive literature review was performed to investigate the best way to address the culturally sensitive needs of Latina survivors. Latina women face unique challenges related to language barriers, cultural gender roles, family values and immigration status. The support group will serve Spanish speaking survivors of IPV.
The goal of the program is to address the critical needs of Latina survivors of IPV in a culturally sensitive manner to empower them to regain their independence and develop self-sufficiency skills in the safe environment of the group. If funded, this program will provide Latina women support and guidance in their journey to break away from the cycle of intimate partner violence and its effects.
