WCASA provides support to service provider organizations to improve and develop sexual assault services.
The Resource Sharing Project (RSP) was created to help sexual assault coalitions and providers access the resources they need in order to develop services to support survivors and end sexual assault. They have developed a variety of helpful resources to support the development and enhancement of sexual assault services.
The RSP offers e-learning modules as part of their training and technical assistance. Modules include webinar recordings and transcripts, presentation slides and handouts, podcasts, guides and quizzes to test your knowledge. These e-learning modules broken down into a three-part series (see more on the Rural Grantee Training Module)
