Description of Resource

Presents information on access to and satisfaction with domestic violence services and the cultural experience of domestic violence in specific ethnic and hard-to-reach populations. The project's recommendations ensure that refugee and immigrant populations receive more information on all aspects of U.S. law and government services related to DV and that ethnic and hard-to-reach populations have access to services to help them develop survival skills for independence, services that promote social support, affordable housing and adequate public transportation, and services for youth and children.
