MNCASA is a membership organization that acts as a collective voice of organizations and individuals committed to ending sexual violence. Members include dual domestic violence and sexual assault programs, rape crisis centers, college and university campuses, law enforcement agencies, offender treatment programs, as well as allied organizations and concerned individuals.
We connect members and increase capacity of programs through networking opportunities, technical assistance, and other resources. MNCASA couldn’t exist without our members – members make us stronger and help shape the resources and services we offer.
Whether you are a direct service provider, allied organization, or someone who wants to work with others to support victims/survivors and prevent sexual violence, we invite you to join the coalition!
We offer member-specific trainings to programs providing services to victims/survivors. Trainings focus on emerging issues, new research, and foundational information.
Member Connection Calls
We host quarterly Member Connection calls to help members build relationships with and learn from one another
We host webinars for members throughout the year, and members have access to a library of past webinars in the Member Portal.
We hold membership meetings throughout the year for members across the state to exchange ideas, resources, and support.
Members can access technical assistance from our team of experts on policy, training, evaluation, and other emerging issues in the field.
We provide fact sheets and resources to keep members informed of policy initiatives, emerging trends, current local, and state and national funding initiatives.
As funding allows, we strive to offer additional opportunities to our members including travel scholarships, training reimbursements, and free access to curriculums.
