VSU Helps Profile 5: Domestic Violence
What can VSU Advocates do with Domestic Violence files?
Advocates can attend the scene after the accused has been removed. The Advocates can provide support, safety planning, agency referral, transportation to a safe place, such as the Shelter or a hotel, child(ren) supervision while the victim gives his/her statement, and/or other assistance as deemed appropriate. Court Support will be provided throughout the court process. The Court Support Worker will ensure that you are made aware of the Financial Benefits program, Requests for Restitution and Victim Impact Statements.
