by Quiroz, Ana I., M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2016, 74; 10099867
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant for a comprehensive case management program to provide culturally sensitive services for Latina immigrant victims of domestic violence in Sonoma County. An extensive literature review helped to identify the needs and barriers to and gaps in support services for Latina immigrants, especially those with undocumented status. The Office of Violence Against Women, Culturally Specific Services Grant was selected as the best fit. The program aims to end the cycle of violence and remove service barriers through bilingual services, psychoeducation, and legal and immigration advocacy that promote self-sufficiency and permanent solutions.

The program is expected to increase women’s safety options, legal rights, knowledge of local resources, and access to formal support systems. No woman regardless of her age, ethnicity, culture, language skills, immigration, or socioeconomic status should live in the shadows of domestic violence.
