The Women’s Center is now accepting applications for their spring 2019 dual Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Certification program. This 48-hour training class certifies volunteers to perform crisis intervention at the Center during business hours or from home when the Center is closed.
It is a prerequisite for court advocate, counselor advocate, group facilitator, and other advanced direct service volunteer positions. Week day training classes begin Tuesday, May 28th.
During the last fiscal year, the Women’s Center responded to over 3,000 sexual assault and domestic violence hotline calls, in addition to providing emergency shelter, counseling services, advocacy services, community education and prevention programs, and information and referral services. More than 33,000 clients in the greater Danbury area were served by the Center’s programs and services.
