Supporting Organizational Sustainability Training
The Supporting Organizational Sustainability to Address Violence Against Women Institute (SOS Institute) offers an interactive, multi-day training to help U.S. Department of Justice Office on Violence Against Women grantees enhance their programming organizational infrastructure.
Started in 2010, the SOS Institute has a national focus, targeting community-based organizations responding to all forms of violence against women, including domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking, and trafficking.
