CCWC offers a variety of services to victims and survivors living in the community, which are also accessible to residential clients. The outreach office provides culturally responsive case management, individual and group supportive counseling, social services assistance, and referral services to anyone affected by domestic violence and/or sexual assault. Services are available on a drop-in basis and by appointment.

Other programs that are based out of the Support Center but take place primarily in the community include:

The Domestic Violence Liaisons (DVL’s) work out of local NJ DCF DC&P offices. When child abuse and domestic violence co-occur, Domestic Violence Liaisons work to strengthen and enhance service coordination between child welfare and domestic violence services. They provide domestic violence training to the DCF staff and conduct assessments and provide services and referrals to families.

Legal Advocacy services include assisting individuals in family and municipal courts with safety planning, understanding their rights under the Prevention of Domestic Violence Act, assisting with decision making and support around filing restraining orders, working with clients in preparing their cases to be heard by the court, accompaniment during court procedures, and providing the emotional support needed to enable victims to move forward.

The Domestic Violence Response Team (DVRT): The DVRT consists of teams of trained volunteer Advocates that respond to a victim during a time of crisis 24 hours a day at local police stations and hospitals. They provide support, information, safety planning, and legal advocacy, as well as linkages with other CCWC programs for longer-term follow up. If interested in volunteering, please visit Volunteer.

Community Education and Prevention: CCWC participates in health fairs, community days, street fairs, educational fairs, and presentations to community groups in order to educate the public about domestic violence and to help to raise awareness about our services.
