The goal of the Domestic Violence Response Team (DVRT) volunteer is to provide crisis intervention and emotional support to victims of domestic violence at the local police department. Volunteers assist victims in developing safety plans and provide necessary information and referrals.
Volunteers are required to attend 40 hours of training over 9 weeks. All prospective volunteers undergo a background check and interview process, and must be at least 18 years of age, have a valid NJ driver’s license, and available transportation. Volunteers for the program must apply for the position before training can begin.
A 40-hour training will be scheduled to begin
When there are enough people interested.
