Project P.A.U.S.E.

Central Islip, New York

Project P.A.U.S.E. is a collaboration between L.I. Against Domestic Violence and the Head Injury Association. These two organizations have a long history of partnership but came together in a collaborative style with the express purpose of eliminating barriers that prevent access to safe, person-centered support for victims of domestic violence with disabilities.
