Community Access Collaboration: Supporting Deaf and Hard of Hearing Victims/Survivors of Sexual and Domestic Violence

More on the COMMUNITY ACCESS COLLABORATION (CAC)… The Committee is now finishing our strategic plan; and preparing for our final approval from the Office on Violence against Women (OVW), our Federal grant overseer. We already had a visit recently, (on line) 8 hours long and encompassing everything we have worked on since we named our collaboration in 2019!

Here’s an illustration of where we are in this project, moving forward. The final (amended) strategic plan draft was submitted to OVW for approval!  You can read up on everything in all the reports submitted to VAD. If you have any specific questions, contact me at and I’ll send you a copy of the whole Strategic Plan (39 pages), most of which have been reported to VAD since 2019.

Respectfully Submitted,

Rachel M. Bavister
