The Office of Violence Against Women (OVW) in the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) awarded Counseling Services again along with Bennett College and Shaw University a grant of $549,999. This HBCU consortium, “Be the Change: Resources, Intervention, Services, and Education” remains the first and only in the history of DOJ/OVW.
The grant is funded for three years and will strengthen responses to crimes of sexual assault and domestic violence and enhance collaboration among local law enforcement and victim advocacy organizations.
Additionally, the grant will focus on organizing and encouraging men and other groups to work as allies to prevent sexual assault crimes, particularly in underserved communities. Each campus will offer effective training, services, prevention strategies, culturally appropriate policies and coordinated community responses for victims of sexual assault.
The grant allows the consortium to use OVW Technical Assistants, who are experts in the field, to build upon the project, enhance responsiveness to survivors, campaign and train incoming students and campus and community partners to become active bystanders, thereby making strides toward ending sexual assault and violence.
