Freedom from Sexual Violence

Special Projects

Colorado Forensic Compliance Evaluation Project

This project explores and documents how forensic compliance is currently being implemented, and tracks forensic compliance cases from the medical forensic exam through prosecution in two jurisdictions, the 2nd Judicial District (Denver County) and the 9th Judicial District (Garfield, Pitkin, and Rio Blanco Counties). For more information, contact Lisa Ingarfield, CFCEP Director, lisa@ccasa.org.

Colorado Rural Initiative to Strengthen Sexual Assault Services

This project supports the development and expansion of services to Latinx and Native American survivors of sexual assault. We are working with four project sites, the Domestic Safety Resource Center in Lamar, the Hispanic Affairs Project in Montrose, Sexual Assault Response Advocates in Fort Morgan, and Sexual Assault Services Organization in Durango. Additionally, this grant supports the development of resources, training, and technical assistance for other rural communities interested in building their capacity to serve these populations. For more information, contact Agueda Morgan, Director of Programs, agueda@ccasa.org.

PREA (Prison Rape Elimination Act) Project

This project supports coordination between community-based advocates and staff at the Department of Corrections and Division of Community Corrections. We will host a 2-day statewide PREA Training to be held in the Denver-metro area in May 2018 as well as develop, print, and distribute a PREA toolkit that explains PREA and how community-based advocates can respond to victims who are incarcerated. Additionally, CCASA staff are available to provide individualized technical assistance and training to community-based advocates and prison staff on PREA issues. For more information, contact Agueda Morgan, Director of Programs, agueda@ccasa.org.

Resources for Youth Survivors

With funding from the Verizon Foundation, during 2018 we will be hosting focus groups with youth throughout the state of Colorado and engaging a youth advisory board to develop a version of our Survivor Handbook and other resources specifically for youth.
