The Resource Center on Domestic Violence: Child Protection and Custody, a project of the NCJFCJ, is pleased to announce a new webinar. This webinar will examine how faith communities can collaborate with advocates to provide spiritual and practical supports to Latin@ victims and survivors and their families. The webinar also will discuss results of listening sessions that Casa de Esperanza did with faith leaders and survivors of domestic violence on the impact of faith/spirituality in healing.
Paula Gomez Stordy, Casa de Esperanza Senior Director of Training and Technical Assistance, was born in Boston to Chilean parents and lived in various cities and towns in Massachusetts and Chile throughout her life. She has worked with survivors of abuse within various settings including courts, hospitals, and shelters and her advocacy has led to institutional change to increase the inclusion and safety of survivors.
