WARREN COUNTY, NJ – The Warren County Prosecutor’s Office endorses the efforts of the Domestic Abuse & Sexual Assault Crisis Center, DASACC, as they actively recruit individuals to become Volunteer Response Team Advocates in Warren County.
These advocates are specially trained community members who provide empathy and information to empower victims of domestic violence and/or sexual assault to make informed decisions for themselves and their families.
The Warren County Prosecutor’s Office said they are pleased to continue their partnership with DASACC as each organization works to provide 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. DASACC advocates respond to victims in crisis at police stations and local hospitals; assist with legal, therapeutic, financial, or housing needs; and are available to victims 24/7 via their hotline,” prosecutor’s office said.
“We in the Warren County Prosecutor’s Office encourage those interested in becoming a Volunteer Response Team Advocate to contact DASACC and become part of our team, as we fight domestic violence and sexual assault,” prosecutor’s office said.
Assist DASACC in its 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, contact Rochelle Ostenfeld at firstname.lastname@example.org.
