3.8 Understanding and Implementing VAWA: A Workshop for Homeless Assistance Providers

The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) is an important piece of legislation that affects all survivors, not just those being served by domestic violence agencies. Presenters in this workshop will give an overview of VAWA, specifically the expansion of housing protections to survivors being served in McKinney-Vento funded homeless assistance programs, and why understanding these protections is important for program staff and the survivors they serve.
