Case Management Manual
Through funding from the Oak Foundation, Women Against Abuse created a first of its kind trauma-informed case management manual that addresses the intersection between homelessness and domestic violence! Despite national directives to end homelessness, Women Against Abuse is the first and only domestic violence agency to develop a model that works with chronically homeless families who have long histories of family violence. Women Against Abuse is pleased to share this manual, in hopes that it will result in greater outcomes for survivors of domestic violence near and far by preventing chronic homelessness, improving survivors' ability to manage trauma symptoms, and reducing return to shelter.
The P-SERV Screening Tool
The Philadelphia Screen for Experience of Relational Violence (P-SERV) was developed for health and human service practitioners to screen for domestic and sexual violence, human sex trafficking, and/or reproductive coercion. This 10-question tool screens for both victimization and perpetration, and includes guidelines for how to safely and effectively implement the screening, as well as differential responses to various disclosures.
P-SERV was created jointly by Women Against Abuse, Inc., Women’s Law Project, Women Organized Against Rape, and Menergy through funding from Women's Way.
iPledge Campaign Toolkit
iPledge is Women Against Abuse’s social awareness campaign that engages the Philadelphia region in taking a stand against domestic violence. Our iPledge Toolkit is a free, downloadable resource that is available at www.iPledgeWAA.org. It offers community members, organizations and city systems an opportunity to take action against domestic violence, by providing a step by step guide to hosting their own version of the iPledge Campaign. Ending relationship violence requires a collective effort by all of us, so Women Against Abuse designed this toolkit for users who want to take action in their communities.
