Domestic Violence Awareness Zoom Conference with RCC

A recorded interview with the Women’s Crisis Support Team and RCC

Below are the questions that we weren’t able to get to today due to technical difficulties:

  1. What can people do to get involved in the community if they’d like to help?
    If they want to help in the community, they can take part in fundraisers that we put on, such as our Heart to Heart fundraiser. Always check our Facebook and Instagram for the latest WCST information. Also, pending Covid restrictions and social distancing, one way to get involved is volunteering and donating! If you are not able to do any of those things, simply having conversations about DV/SA awareness and getting others involved can help spread the word about DV, and potentially save someone from a tough situation. The more people talk about resources and spread awareness, the more people learn about places they can go to get the help they need.
     
  2. Can you offer some local and national resources if people would like to learn more?
    If you want to know more about WCST, or have any questions regarding what we do and offer, feel free to reach out to me directly at lindseybosman@wcstjoco.org.
     
  3. 3. How can someone help a loved one who is in a DV relationship?
    If you find yourself or someone you know has been a victim of Domestic Violence, contact any advocate at WCST by calling at 541-479-9349. We can offer access to local resources, emergency assistance, criminal and family court advocacy, support groups, education on Domestic Violence, emergency safe shelter and assist in any type of advocacy you may need.

    If you find yourself in need of emergency assistance fleeing Domestic Violence in Josephine County (as well as sexual assault or stalking) you can call our 24/7 crisis line to be connected to a local advocate at 541-479-9349.

    In Jackson County you can contact Community Works crisis line at 855-216-2111.

    There is also the National Domestic Violence Hotline: 1-800-799-SAFE (7233). 
    For a full list of resources please refer to our website.
     

  4. Does WCST offer internships or practicum opportunities for students that may be interested in this line of work?
    We do offer practicum opportunities, please call our office to learn more information! 541-479-9349.

    If you, or someone you know has been a victim of Domestic Violence, you can reach out to any of our WCST advocates for help.

    The best thing you can do is let them know that you are there to help them and support them through the process. Abuse is a cycle, and oftentimes not one that is easily broken, so it is important for them to have someone safe and dependent that they can count on.
