Domestic Violence Outreach Program

Improves women’s access to community services and service providers, provides help and information to women in need as well as increase awareness of the issue of domestic violence in the community. The program is an important resource for family violence services, and guides victims to the services they need.

For all victims of domestic violence

The goal is to ensure women living in or leaving abusive relationships have access to someone who can respond to their crisis and support them.  There are 14 domestic violence outreach workers funded by the New Brunswick government across the province.

 

Responsibilities of the Outreach Program include:

  • creating awareness and fostering violence prevention through presentations on family violence and the outreach program for government departments, community organizations, schools and groups in community;
  • planning public awareness activities such as articles for local paper, radio interviews, brochure or flyer to promote services or public events on family violence issues and ensure other service providers are aware of outreach services;
  • offering crisis intervention, risk assessments, safety planning, accompaniment and individual support for those affected by domestic violence;
  • ensuring they have safe meeting places in the community;
  • collaborating to facilitate the development of community-based sexual assault crisis and prevention services; and,
  • assisting their local family violence committee in coordinating with the stakeholders in their area.
