We offer training and consultation, something we (and the federal government) also call “technical assistance” or “TA.” Through our national resource center, we help community-based organizations, coalitions, state agencies, federally funded grantees, and other TA Providers prevent gender-based violence and improve their response when it comes to Latin@ communities. Check out the full list of topics we cover below.
We customize our TA offering to your needs and so we’ll help however makes sense to you - via phone, email, webinar, conferences, customized training, one-to-one consultation, and on-site assistance. If you’re interested in receiving TA or just have a question about it, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What We Train On
- Gender-Based Violence Service Provision: Get the basics of domestic violence, sexual assault, trafficking, and stalking and/or delve into how to support Latin@ survivors and subpopulations within that group like immigrants, those living with disabilities or who are Hard of Hearing, LGBTQ communities, men and boys, students, youth, and bystanders.
- Culture Matters: Learn how oppression and culture intersect with gender-based violence; Latin@ realities, leadership, and social norms; and how to improve cultural responsiveness whether in your own organization, via the justice system, or in your community at large.
- Community Engagement: Use Casa de Esperanza’s tools to engage Latin@ communities in ending gender-based violence. We teach a whole-community approach and can help you identify and engage local Latin@ leaders, families, men and boys, and youth.
- Enhancing Services for Individuals with Limited English Proficiency: Whether your organization is just starting its language access plan or you’re evaluating existing offerings, we can help you meaningfully enhance your ability to offer culturally and linguistically specific/accessible services.
- Trauma: We help organizations better understand childhood, historical, vicarious, and inter-generational trauma, guiding you through offering trauma-informed services, addressing vicarious trauma, building resilience, and practicing self-care.
- Advocacy: Use our strength-based approach to advocacy to enhance your crisis intervention skills and better serve the Latin@ community. We can help you change systems, at your organization and within your community, to meet the unique needs of the Latin@ community.
- Policy Topics: Understand how federal laws and guidelines from the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) to the “Public Charge” rules to the Department of Justice (DOJ) guidance on policing affect you. We also train on how to responsibly engage in policy advocacy to better protect Latin@ and immigrant survivors.
- Organizational Capacity Building: Assess your readiness to serve Latin@s and leverage our training to build meaningful collaborations, develop your leadership, fundraise and manage awards, handle transition, increase inclusion and equity, develop programs, and respond to trauma.
- Outreach & Awareness: Learn how to meaningfully and responsibly conduct public awareness campaigns, use social media, develop strong materials, and uplift survivors’ voices.
- Documentation & Information Management: Explore needs assessment approaches and learn how to develop an evaluation plan, set outcome measurements, collect data, and use community-centered, evidence-based practices.
