DVSS Service Spotlight! Domestic violence is not a one size fits all issue. Each survivor's experiences, challenges, and needs are unique and it is important for us to meet each individual where they are. One-on-one Advocacy gives survivors the opportunity to work with one of our trained staff members to address personal needs, discuss available options, obtain referrals for other resources, and create a safety plan that is tailored to their unique circumstance. #advocacy #weareheretohelp #24hours #everyday #youarenotalone #morethanjustshelter #domesticviolenceawarenessmonth #youareenough

Next up, Court Advocacy. There are many different processes that a survivor may have to go through because of a single act of domestic violence. At DVSS, we believe it is important for survivors to understand the court proceedings that may take place after an act of domestic violence is reported, and also to feel supported during those proceedings. Our Court Advocate is available to accompany clients to New Hanover County’s civil and criminal domestic violence court rooms, but also to help clients find information and referrals for resources that help them better understand court proceedings.#heretohelp #yourenotalone #youcandothis

This month, follow along with us as we highlight some of our programs and services at DVSS. Through the CDC’s DELTA program, DVSS has been funded for more than seventeen years to do violence prevention work in the Wilmington community. Although that work has evolved over the years, our current efforts focus on school-based prevention programs such as "Shifting Boundaries" and "Bringing in the Bystander". Strong community collaboration has allowed us and other partners to offer programs like these to many young people in our community in the hopes of preventing and ultimately ending domestic violence. #domesticviolenceawarenessmonth #domesticviolence_ilm #prevention
