Working with the court system, filing legal paperwork, and trying to stay safe can be a daunting process. That's where you come in! Court advocates help people seeking emergency protective orders against those who have harassed, assaulted, or stalked them fill out and submit the necessary paperwork.
Volunteers make sure that victims are heard, seen, and supported as they write their incident statements, figure out their next steps, and plan for their safety going forward. They make sure that the client understands what the protective order is and what options they have. At all times, advocates must speak up for the best interests of the client.
If you want a fast-paced volunteer experience, this opportunity might be a perfect fit. Fill out an application at http://dvis.org/donate/volunteer-2/
