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.
We are always interested in recruiting new volunteers. We believe that volunteers are our partners in this important work. Therefore, anyone who wants to volunteer on any on-going basis must complete our training program and must have a clean criminal record. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age, unless they are part of an organized group, such as a church youth group, or scouts, etc. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer at SpringHaven, please enter your email address below, or call the business office at (270) 765-4057 to request a volunteer packet.
