Happening now at DCVLP - Guardian Ad Litem Training for volunteers interested in representing children in high conflict custody cases. If you couldn’t make today’s training, but are still interested in volunteering, please email Ashley Badgley, email@example.com.
DCVLP Program and Outreach Manager Ashley with DCVLP Development Director Karen at this year’s #KEEPDCSAFE Fundraiser at Room and Board, put on by the wonderful organization DC SAFE.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and due to the Government Shutdown, many organizations that serve survivors of domestic violence are facing possibly shutting their doors due to a lack of funding. One great org in DC that is facing this terrible situation is Survivors and Advocates for Empowerment (SAFE), Inc.. Help SAFE stay open so they can provide emergency housing and assistance to those in need during and after the government shutdown! #dvam
