Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of the grant proposal was to locate a potential funding source to support and develop a program to address the needs of Spanish speaking women who have experienced domestic violence. A funding source was identified through the Department of Health and Human Services with the purpose of reducing violence against women in marginalized communities. A literature review was conducted to identify the specific needs experienced by Latina women in the United States and the barriers they face when seeking help. Some of the unique challenges Latina survivors face include traditional cultural beliefs, societal stigma, Spanish language interpretation, and misconceptions of the available resources. The program Rompiendo el Ciclo was created to empower Latina survivors of intimate partner violence through education, nonjudgmental support, and trauma informed care to regain their identity and control. Rompiendo el Ciclo allows participants a more in depth understanding through a culturally competent Spanish curriculum.
