JFS MetroWest Seeks Volunteers for Rachel Coalition Court Advocate Program

Rachel Coalition, the domestic violence division of Jewish Family Service of MetroWest NJ (JFS), is seeking volunteers for its court advocate program. This 40-hour hands-on training program educates participants to assist domestic violence victims with emotional and administrative support as they await their restraining order hearings in Essex Family Court in Newark.

Training sessions will be held on Wednesdays from 6 – 9 p.m.. beginning March 13. No formal legal experience or education is required for this volunteer position. Volunteers will have an opportunity to observe family court proceedings. Those who have already taken a 40-hour domestic violence training class in the last five years may qualify for abbreviated training. For further information on the court advocate program and to schedule an interview, please contact Tia-lee Dawson, [email protected] .

For more information, please call (973) 765-9050 or visit www.jfsmetrowest.org .
