UNICA

UNICA, la rama de violencia doméstica y sexual de EPHC, se desarrolló en respuesta directa a las necesidades identificadas por la comunidad latina. El objetivo de UNICA es proporcionar apoyo, defensa y oportunidad para el autoempoderamiento, permitiendo a los sobrevivientes ejercer opciones de vida libres e informadas. Fundada en 1992 en respuesta a la gran demanda de la comunidad de servicios de violencia doméstica y sexual específicos cultural y lingüísticamente, UNICA sirve a 1,500 sobrevivientes cada año.

 

Es un programa con una sólida cartera de servicios que incluye, entre otros, intervención en crisis y respuesta urgente, grupos de apoyo, servicios de salud mental, servicios para niños y familias, servicios fuera de estación, servicios con el trafico humano, servicios de agresión sexual y programación de prevención primaria.

Legal Advocacy

Case managers and advocates help survivors navigate the court/legal systems through a variety of mechanisms. Survivors may need support with criminal, civil, or immigration legal remedies. The advocate role is to provide support to survivors through referrals and system navigation. Case managers and advocates walk individuals through the restraining/stalking order process and accompany them to court when appropriate. Case managers and advocates are under no reason to provide legal advice.

Medical Advocacy Accompaniment

Case managers and advocates may accompany or advocate for survivors who seek medical attention from injuries/trauma/illnesses that have resulted from the domestic and/or sexual violence.

General Advocacy and Safety Planning

Case managers and advocates help with safety planning and access to services by providing information and referrals to other community resources. Safety planning is offered to all survivors of domestic and sexual violence through formal and informal conversations with the survivors in which our agency works the survivor to identify and address risks, barriers, or concerns regarding the ability to stay safe. Our agency offers safety planning through crisis lines, at shelters, and/or through other services.  Accompaniment to DHS and other services as needed may also be done.
