Community Sexual Assault Programs
Levy-Peck Consulting, LLC, works under contract with the State of Washington Office of Crime Victims Advocacy to conduct an independent accreditation review process for Community Sexual Assault Programs (CSAPs) across the state. Washington’s CSAPs must be accredited to be eligible to receive state funding.
The accreditation process ensures that programs throughout the state offer a consistent range of services and have an infrastructure that supports quality services for survivors and the community. Accreditation standards address training requirements for staff and volunteers, fiscal practices, agency governance, documentation of services, confidentiality safeguards, participation in the community, and other aspects of sound programs.
