Our next volunteer training will be on the nights of September 12th, September 14, September 19th and September 21st. We will meet at the Family Resource Agency from 5:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. each night. Topics covered will be domestic violence 101, sexual assault 101, professional boundaries, court advocacy, crisis and hotline counseling, vicarious trauma, trauma-informed care and self-care.
For those who wish to do direct services with clients (answering the hotline, crisis counseling, helping with children), you must attend all 4 nights of the training, pass a federal background check and a drug test.
For those who wish to do indirect services, such as, cleaning, sorting donations, office work, running errands, etc., you only have to attend the first two nights of training.

On June 2, 2015, Family Promise of Bradley County partnered with the Cleveland Police Department and the Family Violence Program to raise awareness for children who are facing a crisis or homeless situation. The program received 60 bags filled with stuffed animals, blankets and books for children of all ages who have to come into shelter. We would like to say thank you to both Jessica and Eva at Family Promise, for all their dedication and hard work on this project.
