In One Year...
Between July 1, 2010 and June 30, 2011, KCSDV provided 50 webinars and 107 in person trainings to 4,036 advocates and allies from July 2010 through June 2011. These trainings were offered to advocates, law enforcement, court personnel, attorneys, medical professionals, mental health providers, substance abuse provides, educators, disability advocates, child welfare professionals, and many other community allies.
During this same period, KCSDV answered 3,956 calls for technical assistance, up 20% from the previous year. Calls primarily came from KCSDV Member Programs that provide direct services to survivors. However, we also received over 1,000 calls from allied professionals including health care and law enforcement.
