CSSP Chapter from the 2016 Biennial Report to Congress
Read about program accomplishments from July 2013 - June 2015 and hear from grantees in their own words.
Prior to receiving the CSS P grant, there was little or no communication between agencies and organizations dealing with DV and SA issues. The grant also allowed us to build strong partnerships with law enforcement and community-based service providers to make sure we can meet all of the needs of the victims: legal, educational, supportive, housing, etc., in a holistic way. Throughout the duration of the grant, we have had a steady and increasing flow of clients who have learned about our DV services through our comprehensive outreach efforts, word of mouth, and a cross-referral relationship with various key partners outlined in this report. We have distributed thousands of informational brochures and maintained a strong presence at all major immigrant-focused events, conferences, and festivals, regionally and throughout New York.
