Transcript of Resolve Family Abuse Program: Boone and Clay County Outreach

Court Advocacy
Support for the Victim
Emergency Shelter and Safety Planning
Community Education
Other Services
We offer multiple presentations to educate the community and other agencies on a variety of topics such as:

The Dynamics of Domestic Violence
Teen Dating Violence
Elder Abuse
Racial Justice
Bullying Prevention

Our advocates also provide emotional support for the victims

Many times a victim simply needs to know that someone cares and understands the situation that they're in

Resolve advocates are trained to understand the dynamics of domestic violence and help empower victims to make their own choices on what is best suited for their situation
The YWCA does operate an emergency shelter
Advocates may make referrals there if the client is fleeing her abuser and is in need of shelter

If the client is staying with her abuser or is staying somewhere close by with relatives or friends advocates can assist the client in safety planning
Through the YWCA we also have other services offered through our office in Charleston such as:
Clients who have experienced domestic violence may face many other issues as well

Advocates maintain relationships with other agencies to whom they may refer clients for additional services if needed

Hearings for DVPs are held in Family Court
Advocates can accompany clients into the hearings. The judge may or may not grant the DVP based upon the evidence presented

Clients can also apply for an extension of the order and a hearing will be scheduled

If DVP is not granted or DVP expires and client is still in danger from abuser:
The client can file again with different evidence

Advocates can help the client to plan for their safety
