California Advocates Leading in Engagement, Accessibility, and Developmental Disability Service (C.A. LEADDS) is an ongoing collaboration between VALOR and The Arc of California with a mission to transform California rape crisis centers and disability service provider agencies’ capacity to support survivors of sexual violence with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This session will describe the development of our collaboration, explore our needs assessment and focus group findings, and highlight resources and products that have been developed to support survivors with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
