I became familiar with EVAW at a training more than 4 years ago at a training in TN. While I am not law enforcement, I found their information to be useful in my work as a victim advocate. Additionally, I have utilized their online training modules and incorporated some of their information into my own trainings of advocates. their work is invaluable and I am thankful they exist.

in June of 2006, EVAW helped present a two-day conference on “The Community Response to Sexual Assault” in Binghamton, NY. Over fifty recipient professionals and community leaders brought additional volunteers and new ideas to the table. They saw that while program members continued to work together, rarely did they have the opportunity to train together. The conference evaluations also prompted a closer look at the coiunty SAFE program’s momentum, direction, and resources. This timely and valuable series of events led to forming a new “Team” to strategically plan the enhancement of skills, increase the collective knowledge, and motivate the alliance of professionals to forge ahead to an even higher level of achievement.
