The Mary Parrish Center is a unique non-residential program that provides access to a comprehensive array of services for domestic/sexual violence victims and their children during critical times in their lives. A $33,760 grant is awarded to cover the cost of an additional Victims’ Advocate at the Order of Protection Docket. Mary Parrish estimates that this person will advocate for and/or educate approximately 25 victims per day. The Victims’ Advocate works with the victims to ensure that they understand the importance of following their safety plan, the steps for reporting an order of protection violation and will be aware of all the community supportive services that they need, thereby significantly increasing the level of safety and wellbeing of domestic and sexual violence victims.
