2019 SANCTUARY PROGRAM:



The Spring 2019 Basic Sanctuary Course is now open to registration. The Sanctuary Course prepares volunteers to effectively assist and advocate for victim/survivors of intimate partner assault, sexual assault, child abuse, as well as survivors of homicide victims who are members of local area churches, mosques, synagogues, and temples in Essex County or are receiving services through other allied partners. The training will also prepare those who have applied for membership on their municipal police department's domestic violence response teams, are involved in other community activities, or work for local area social service agencies. Successfully completing of the training program is not only a way to help those in crisis, but is also an opportunity to join a helping community of dynamic people. Volunteers are invited to participate in subsequent training sessions to further develop their advocacy skills. The work is challenging at times, but the rewards are many, including the opportunity to make wonderful friends. Both the Basic Sanctuary Course and the Advanced Sanctuary Course Are Offered Free of Charge. For more information, please call 973-621-4689 or contact us by e-mail at EssexVW@njecpo.org. To apply, please download the following documents and follow the instructions in the Application Packet:
