Author(s): Jacquelyn Boggess and Jill Groblewski

Safety and Services is based on a series of listening sessions with women who shared their experiences and knowledge of domestic violence, economic support services, and community. The paper explores cultural differences, community influences, a role for churches, and the value of a broad range of economic and social support services for increasing the safety and well-being of low-income women of color.
