Bridge to Safety

Columbia, South Carolina

Able South Carolina (Able SC), Sexual Trauma Services of the Midlands (STSM), and the YWCA of the Upper Lowlands (YWCA), have partnered together to form a collaboration to serve people who have been impacted by domestic or sexual violence who also have disabilities. Bridge to Safety envisions a future where people with disabilities who have been impacted by domestic and sexual violence can have equitable access to trauma informed care, support, and services. These services will be consumer-driven, inclusive, accessible, personalized, and confidential and will foster a sense of empowerment, independence, acceptance, safety, and support.
