Knoxville, TN -- YWCA Knoxville is excited to announce the launch of its statewide training and technical assistance project, Más Seguro y Más Fuerte: Safer and Stronger. This project, funded through the State of Tennessee Office of Criminal Justice Programs, will offer training and best practices to statewide victim services agencies, kicking off in Knoxville on Thursday, August 24.

This month, the YWCA Knoxville will host the first in a series of Más Seguro y Más Fuerte trainings offered across the state. Beginning on August 24th at the YWCA downtown Knoxville location (420 W. Clinch Ave.), trainers will travel across the state to continue trainings in Nashville (September 27th) and Jackson (October 27th).

Focused on providing strategies and practices to enhance services for Hispanic and Spanish-speaking victims of domestic violence, the YWCA Knoxville uses its decades of knowledge and proven practices to highlight successful strategies, long-term planning processes, and statewide resources for victims and professionals.

Agencies across the state joined the YWCA Knoxville as part of Más Seguro y Más Fuerte's planning committee, including the Alliance for Better Non-Profits (Knoxville), Centro Hispano de East Tennessee (Knoxville), HoLa Hora Latina (Knoxville), the Urban League of Greater Chattanooga (Chattanooga), and the YWCA Bristol (Bristol).
