Sitkans Against Family Violence (SAFV)
SAFV provides trainings for groups and agencies that have an interest in domestic violence, sexual assault, and the effects of violence on children. Because domestic violence carries over into every aspect of a person's life, training and information is important for employers, ministers, health care professionals, teachers, counselors, and the general public in order to support victims and their children. There is no cost for this service.
The Outreach Coordinator is available for:
- Presentations to community organizations and programs on the dynamics of domestic violence and SAFV services.
- Professional trainings regarding domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, healthcare screening for domestic violence, cost and impact on employers, spiritual and religious support, and the impact of domestic violence on children.
Please contact the Outreach Coordinator at SAFV to schedule an Outreach Program training.
