Assistance to Survivors of Sexual Assault

The Family Law Unit of PLA has a Department of Justice grant to provide holistic legal services to survivors of sexual assault. PLA is partnered with the housing, employment, energy, and welfare units of Community Legal Services, HIAS of Pennsylvania and Women Organized Against Rape (WOAR).  PLA and its grant partners provide a coordinated response to survivors' legal needs. The grant partnership has resulted in a streamlined referral system between grant partners, and involves continuous cross-agency trainings. Consequently, staff are better able to issue-spot clients' needs and refer them to the appropriate service provider in an efficient manner. Survivors of sexual assault may call our central hotline number, 215-981-3844, at any time.
