Primarily, this funding allows us to to provide training that will enhance the ability of Vermont sexual violence assistance agencies to serve the LGBTQ and migrant worker community in a manner that addresses the lack of culturally competent services. The training we offer removes one of the most important barriers to services and that is a bias against and misunderstanding of LGBTQ people and the migrant worker community. Additionally, we are able to help service providers address issues and situations that may make LGBTQ and migrant worker clients distrustful or suspicious.
