Are you the one to help a domestic abuse victim’s path to healing begin?

It’s one of the most critical tasks in the moments in the aftermath of domestic violence – helping the victims through the first dark hours of trauma. If you have the physical, mental and emotional adeptness for it, 180-Turning Lives Around and police in Monmouth’s Ocean Township need you.Domestic-Violence

Both agencies are partners in organizing the Domestic Violence Response Team (DVRT), civilian volunteers who provide confidential support, direction, and referrals for victims inside Ocean Township PD headquarters. They are committed to developing a culturally-diverse team that reflects our region.

180-Turning Lives Around in Hazlet is now in its 40th year of counseling, sheltering, support, education, advocacy, and prevention efforts on behalf of Monmouth victims of domestic and sexual abuse.

Applications are being accepted for training that runs from April 17 through May 11, Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, 6:00 – 9:30 PM, at the Hazlet Police Department, 255 Middle Road.

In addition to solace, DVRT members offer perspective by discussing safety planning, and explaining legal rights that victims have to obtain temporary restraining orders. DVRT volunteers enable victims to take the first steps for protecting themselves and their families.

Prospective volunteers should be at least 18 years of age, have reliable transportation and valid driver’s licenses, undergo interviews, background checks and fingerprinting, complete the training, and be willing to serve on an on-call basis. Bi-lingual skills are helpful.

If you think you have what it takes, e-mail Ocean Township PD Lieutenant Eduardo Segarra for an application or more information.

If you, or someone you know, has been affected by domestic or sexual abuse, 180-Turning LIves Around maintains a confidential, 24/7 hotline, 732-264-4111 / 888-843-9262.
