Victim Advocacy

Education and Training

Our victim advocates are trained and certified professionals who are in all Emergency Protective Order (EPO) and Domestic Violence Order (DVO) hearings in all of our eight counties.  The role of the victim advocate is NOT to be an attorney, but rather is to provide support to the victim and information about the services offered by SpringHaven.  Victim advocates also provide safety planning and will make referrals if clients request services not provided by our agency.  Support groups and individual domestic violence education is also provided at the request of the client.
