This last month Human Options hosted the 40-hour Domestic Violence Advocate Training. We successfully trained 59 new advocates that will help us continue the work in Orange County. Our advocates come from various fields and expertise, including: UCI, CSUF, Azusa Pacific, Santa Ana College students, attorneys at law from Community Legal Aid SoCal, staff from the Department of Child Support Services, staff from Families Forward, Children and Family Futures, as well as two of our Teen Ambassadors.
Congratulations to our 59 advocates that are now trained and can help our community to help end relationship violence!
“All of the speakers were very well prepared and provided great resources, knowledge, and tools we can use to support victims of DV. Very comprehensive training. I am glad I took the training and totally recommend it.” – Training Advocate
