SOS Partners with Look to End Abuse Permanently (LEAP)

In recognition of the potential for increased family violence during the holiday season, the SFCCC Street Outreach Services (SOS) mobile medical van program for homeless continues its partnership with Look to End Abuse Permanently (LEAP). LEAP is an organization of health care providers and volunteers dedicated to ending intimate partner violence by establishing intimate partner violence screening, treatment and prevention programs in the health care setting. Since the beginning of the partnership SOS has demonstrated 100% improvement in the screening and treatment rates for intimate partner violence; incorporated use of a standardized assessment tool; and trained key SOS staff to conduct appropriate assessments and interventions with homeless clients of the SOS medical van.
