Who We Are

"From its unique vantage point as the statewide coalition, JDI helps us all connect the dots between policy, practice and services and strengthens our work in the communities we serve." ~ Linda Cavaioli, Executive Director, YWCA of Central Massachusetts

FY2016 Budget Ask for Sexual and Domestic Violence Services

An additional $6.134 million in funds for sexual and domestic violence services will make a significant difference in the ability of local programs to respond to and meet the needs in their communities. Specifically, it will 1) finally restore the funding cuts from FY2009 for sexual assault, including culturally specific services for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Queer and Transgender and immigrant communities, and batterer’s intervention programs; 2) increase capacity for community based domestic violence services of another advocate per 100,000 individuals across Massachusetts; and 3) support medical accompaniment by a rape crisis advocate in the Berkshires, south shore and northeast regions.
