About Technical Assistance

We act as a sounding-board for a variety of issues that arise when supporting survivors of intimate partner violence (IPV). IPV may include: domestic violence (DV), sexual violence, dating violence and/or stalking. Our staff use their expertise and training to help individuals and agencies analyze their concerns. TA does not take the place of training or legal advice received. Instead, it supplements the training and legal advice you may have already received. We provide TA in English, Spanish, and all other languages using a language line.
