Re-launching the Enhancing Sexual Assault Services Initiative (E-SASI)

Thanks to a partnership with CVSSD, each program selected to participate in E-SASI will receive $20,000 in Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) funds.

The Oregon Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence (OCADSV) in partnership with the Oregon Department of Justice Crime Victim and Survivor Services Division (CVSSD), is pleased to offer the Enhancing Sexual Assault Services Initiative (E-SASI). This 18-month initiative will provide up to six sexual and domestic violence (S/DV) programs across the state an opportunity to receive specialized support in enhancing sexual assault advocacy services.

E-SASI will utilize a four-pronged approach focused on building capacity within:

Individual skills

Anti-oppression work

Organizational development

Trauma-informed practices

Selected programs will receive training and support from OCADSV and national trainers throughout the 18-month period. Additionally, the initiative will provide opportunities to learn with and develop meaningful relationships with sibling organizations across the state through a cohort learning model.

This project is informed by the Resource Sharing Project’s Sexual Assault Demonstration Initiative (SADI)
