Application Assistants help potential participants apply for the Safe at Home program. The Safe at Home program uses individuals throughout the state to help with this process. Individuals involved in victim services, hospitals, law enforcement, schools, and other areas that may encounter victims of domestic violence, sexual abuse, stalking, trafficking, and violent crimes are encouraged to receive Application Assistant training. A prospective Safe at Home participant does not need to use an Application Assistant in order to sign up for the Safe at Home program. However, as Safe at Home is only one piece of a safety plan, we recommend individuals utilize Application Assistants to learn how to maximize the program to their advantage.
