Prosecutor, DASACC team up to recruit volunteers for those impacted by domestic violence and sexual assault

The Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s Office and the Domestic Abuse Sexual Assault Crisis Center (DASACC) are recruiting individuals to become Volunteer Response Team Advocates in Hunterdon and Warren Counties. These advocates are specially trained community members who provide empathy and infor1nation to empower victims of domestic violence and/or sexual assault to make informed decisions for themselves and their families.

The Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s Office is pleased to continue our partnership with DASACC as we offer support and assistance to those crime victims most in need of help. Although the core functions of the Prosecutor’s Office are to investigate and prosecute crimes, another, often overlooked, function is assisting crime victims in navigating the criminal justice system during the most traumatic and challenging times of their lives. These vulnerable individuals are deserving of our continued support and guidance, which we perform hand-in hand with our DASACC partners.

DASACC does an outstanding job of responding to the continuum of needs that victims of domestic violence and sexual assault experience. DASAAC advocates are available to respond to a victim in crisis at police stations or the local hospital; assist with any legal, therapeutic, financial, or housing needs; and are available to victims 24/7 via their hotline.

The Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s Office encourage anyone interested in volunteering to be a victim advocate to contact DASACC and become part of our team in fighting domestic violence and sexual abuse. Assist DASACC in their mission to help, serve, and advocate for those impacted by interpersonal violence, to be proactive regarding its prevention, and to create positive change.

To volunteer with DASACC, contact Hailey Fritzsch at hfritzsch@dasacc.org.
