Help Support Those Affected by Domestic Violence in Our Communities

Submitted by the Domestic Violence Service Network

The bi-annual Volunteer Advocate Training program sponsored by the Domestic Violence Services Network, Inc. (DVSN) at the Concord Police Department will take place from March 13 through March 31, 2018. This 40-hour training session takes place over a 3-week period on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:30 – 9:30 p.m. and on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

Those interested in more information and/or want to request an application should call (978) 318-3421 or send an e-mail to dvvap@concordma.gov. Applications are due no later than Monday, March 5, 2018.

Once trained, DVSN’s volunteer Advocates provide direct service over the phone, at the Concord District Court, and at Emerson Hospital to people affected by domestic violence. The 40-hour training is designed to familiarize the volunteers with the many aspects of domestic violence and give them the skills necessary to provide confidential and appropriate services to DVSN’s clients.

DVSN is a community-based organization that works to combat domestic violence in collaboration with the police departments of its twelve member towns (Acton, Bedford, Boxborough, Carlisle, Concord, Lexington, Lincoln, Maynard, Stow, Sudbury, Wayland, and Weston), Hanscom AFB, the Concord District Court, and Emerson Hospital.
