RESOURCE: Self-Assessment Tool for Advocacy Programs

Also known as: Oregon statewide standards for providing services to survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence

The information and programs discussed in this manual can apply to services for females and males; however since the majority of this document addresses shelter services (which usually only serve females and children) the female gender is used to refer to the recipient of services.  It is also important to acknowledge that the majority of victims who report domestic violence and sexual assault are women. Overwhemingly, the perpetrators of the violence are male.  However, there are incidents when males are victimes of domestic violence perpetrated by females and battering can occur in same sex relationships.  Therefore, it is important to have services available for male and female victims and batterers.
