Advocacy and Support

  • Volunteers are needed to work at the Family Justice Center in Greensboro and the Slane Center in High Point to assist with childcare while victims are in the process of filing for protective orders or receiving advocacy services. In many cases, victims have no choice but to come with their children, which can complicate or delay protective orders or advocacy.
  • Court Accompaniment Volunteers are needed to provide support in Greensboro and High Point to survivors who are attending court for return hearings regarding domestic violence protection orders. Support provided in this position would range from navigating entry into the courtroom, emotional support during the hearing and follow up information about safety and other services. 20 hours of training will be provided.
