RCIS is hosting a training on July 26, 2018, in conjunction with Maryland Safe at Home.
This training is open to professionals who work directly with victims of sexual and domestic violence as well as human trafficking. See the link to the flyer below for RSVP information.
The Maryland Safe at Home Address Confidentiality Program (ACP) is administered by the Office of the Secretary of State. For those who qualify, the ACP is a vital part of a victim’s safety plan that offers a substitute address while keeping their actual residential address out of public record. Our participants use the substitute address when interacting with state and local Maryland government agencies. The ACP offers a free, first-class mail forwarding service. Our main goal is to reduce the likelihood of their abuser locating them once they have fled to a shelter or safe location unknown to their abuser.
We desire to connect and establish working relationships with organizations in Maryland counties that support the needs of victims of domestic violence, human trafficking, sexual assault, and stalking. To help clients apply to our program, advocates must receive application assistant training from our office. Application assistant training typically takes about an hour and is intended for experienced domestic violence and human trafficking advocates. The awareness portion of the training is well-suited for anyone who may encounter victims and ACP participants, including police, social services, etc.
