APFC developed the Domestic Violence: Support on Site (DV-SOS) program in response to ongoing requests from social service agency staff for more training so that they can better serve their clients who disclose domestic violence. DV:SOS educates those staff on the issue of domestic violence, response and referral.

Two Components of DV-SOS

  1. Specific training for CASA New Jersey (Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children) staff and volunteers. Two hour, stand alone classes on Domestic Violence 101 and Effects of Domestic Violence on Children.
  2. Two hour, stand-alone domestic violence presentations to social service organizations that don't specialize in IPV but are likely to have victims among the clients they serve.
