Serving Survivors who Have Service Animals

Service animals are vital to some survivors with disabilities. They can provide independence and mobility and truly act as partners to their handlers. However, domestic violence shelters and other residential programs might struggle with how to: 1) interact with service animals; and 2) balance the presence of service animals with needs of other survivors. This webinar will review some of the complexities and provide guidance on how best to balance the needs of service users when a survivor has a service animal.

CVS Program Associate Ashley Brompton will be the presenter for this webinar. CVS Program Associate Jennifer Decker will be a guest presenter.
