Westchester Safe Access

Elmsford, New York

The Westchester Safe Access Collaboration consists of the Victims Assistance Services of Westchester Community Opportunity Program, Inc., the Westchester Independent Living Center, and three Westchester County government entities: the Office For Women, the Office For the Disabled, and the Department of Community Mental Health. Members of the collaboration have worked together in the past and have come together to build on those relationships and address the problem of sexual and intimate partner violence as it affects persons with disabilities.

Our Unique Contribution

Westchester Safe Access is striving to create a safe, accessible, culturally competent and compassionate response to sexual and domestic violence for persons with disabilities.
