ABOUT NATALIE'S VOICE
Natalie’s Voice is a family-driven sexual assault prevention advocacy organization aiming to:
Raise awareness that the people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) are highly vulnerable to sexual assault.
Empower caregivers with effective planning tools.
Build community around response so that perpetrators are brought to justice.
Each and every non-verbal person with intellectual and developmental disabilities will have their voice be heard, by way of loving care providers, through effective planning, adaptive technology and a cohesive agency response system, in the face of the sexual assault epidemic.
Those with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and their families, shall live their lives free from sexual assault.
Sexual assault is a crime, despite the cognitive level of the victim, and should be treated as such.
The typical world, with education and training, can better understand the response needs for victims with I/DD and their families.
