Domestic Violence Education and Volunteer Training

Have you noticed all of the domestic violence arrests lately in the newspaper?

Do you see that many of them have a long record of multiple domestic violence arrests?

Now is the perfect time to learn more about domestic violence isses, what causes it and how to help eliminate it in our community. If you were to be called to be a juror and the case was a domestic violence case, do you understand all the dynamics involved in these cases?

Get involved!!

Mark your calendars for our next training. We have a great need for volunteers in our program!! Some of the areas you could be of assistance after completing the required training are answering the hotline, covering the shelter, co-facilitating a support group, filing, assisting with orders of protection, assisting with groups, and more.

Please make every effort in helping us recruit participants for this training. Think about all the groups of people you personally are associated with at work, school, your friends/family, neighborhood, church and any kind of committee or organization you are a part of. Please do your part in spreading the word about this worthwhile training.

Teri Ducy, Domestic Violence Program Director

Registration for the DVEVT begins on April 7.  Training begins on May 19 and ends on June 4.  Please check our web site for addtional information.

“have you talked to a trained domestic violence advocate?"

Have you ever had a victim of domestic violence try and open-up to you about their abuse and you not know what to say or how to handle it?...
