About

Children’s Advocates provide children affected by domestic abuse with opportunities to engage in positive activities in a safe, structured environment. Children’s Advocates work with children of various ages, ability levels, and backgrounds who are either current residents of the shelter or whose parents are attending a support group. As DAIS staff, Children’s Advocates must adhere to confidentiality and Children’s Program policies and procedures, and the agency’s Code of Ethics.
