This page will be updated frequently to include links, information, and other types of resources that can help community organizations to improve their services for Hispanic communities, or to help organizations in starting projects or services intended for these communities. If you have or know of any valuable resources in this regard, please forward them to: OCHLA.OLAnet@ochla.state.oh.us
Resources for Health Programs:
The Department of Justice and the Office for Victims of Crime have recently released the Existe Ayuda (Help Exists) Tool-Kit, which provides service providers with culturally competent and bilingual resources for assisting Hispanic victims of sexual violence. The goal is to build the cultural competency of service providers while facilitating access to services for Hispanic individuals. This will serve as a great tool for those who are interested in starting Spanish-language programs, and for those who wish to expand their programs to meet the needs of Hispanic communities. The tool-kit includes power-point presentations, glossaries to help with translation, and other valuable tools.
By clicking here, you can access the tool-kit and increase your program's ability to raise awareness about sexual violence to Hispanic communities, while better serving those who require assistance.
