FORBES HOUSE - Advocacy
Domestic Violence victims must often deal with complex bureaucracies.
Advocates assist men, women and children by acting as a liaison with any bureaucracies they must come in contact with.
Advocates also assist victims in establishing their goals; facilitate referrals to other agencies; and accompany them through the legal system.
Advocacy is available to ex-residents and non-residents as well as those residing in the shelter.
