Disability and Developmental Disability Project
Although strides have been made in preventing violence for  women with disabilities, there is much more work to be done.  Research shows that women with disabilities are more likely to experience abuse than those without disabilities and that these women are at higher riks for abuse by multiple perpetrators for longer periods of time. 

Through this Project, funded by the California Department of Public Health, TC-TAT has provided trainings and customized technical assistance to domestic violence agencies throughout California to better serve people with disabilities and increase programs and shelters accessiblity. TC-TAT has trained over 350 individuals and provided technical assistance to 94 domestic violence shelters.  The Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence also collaborated on this project.
