Advocacy for LGBTQIA+ Folx
Survivor Support and Community Training
LGBTQIA-specific support groups allow survivors to come together in an accessible, inviting space to relate to one another and work together through the challenges they face. Individual counseling is also available.
One in four LGBTQIA+ folx have reported experiencing some type of intimate partner violence (IPV) in their lifetime. The LGBTQIA+ Advocacy program at WC&S strives to connect with the community to provide intersectional, accessible, and competent care for LGBTQIA+ survivors of IPV.
Our support group provides survivors with the space to work together to navigate their individual challenges. For those who do not want group work at this time, individual advocacy is also available.
This is intended as a safe space for queer/trans survivors and people who are still in their abusive relationship. Counseling and coaching can include topics like developing coping skills, boundary setting, and understanding issues of power and control.
Partnerships and Community Training
Our LGBTQIA+ advocate is also available to provide training to interested community partners on the experiences of queer/trans survivors of IPV. Program partners have included universities, non-profits, medical staff, and other community partners who offer services to the queer/trans community.
