The End Abuse of People with Disabilities Initiative is a project of the Vera Institute of Justice’s Center on Victimization and Safety. The Center on Victimization and Safety Overview works with communities around the country to create healing services and justice options that reach, appeal to, and benefit all survivors. Our work focuses on communities of people who are at elevated risk of harm but often marginalized from the organizations and systems designed to support victims.
