We are an advocacy org. for those affected by child abuse, sexual assault, domestic violence and homelessness. We have a brave young woman who was the victim of a violent dating relationship. She had a positive experience with law enforcement. We would like a 2 page graphic newsletter document we can share with law enforcement to encourage victim empowerment. We have finished copy and photos, and need it to be visually appealing.
We love the idea of helping law enforcement connect with victims of violence in a trauma-informed way. We are in rural Midwest, and some officers are highly trained, others are not. We will use this educational flyer to help law enforcement improve contact with victims of violence. We can also share it with organizations and groups who may have contact with victims in a personal way. We serve 2.5 rural counties, lots of people, few resources.
HOPE's mission is to empower lives through hope, offering support and advocacy to anyone affected by child abuse, sexual assault, domestic violence and homelessness.
We serve about 1700+ people a year in 2.5 rural counties in SE Minnesota. We have a domestic violence shelter, and offer advocacy and support to those who have experienced child abuse, sexual assault and homelessness. We are the only organization proving these services in our rural area.
