Is It Safe To Say? Talking with DSHS about violence and abuse

"Is it Safe to Say?" is a guide for survivors of domestic violence who are or may be enrolled in welfare programs. The information in the booklet could be useful for advocates as well. This booklet aims to answer some important questions about what happens to a survivor's personal information when it is entered into the DSHS computer system, and includes information that can help a survivor make a decision about disclosing domestic violence and other information to their DSHS worker. Please download this booklet and make it available in your community.
