Purpose of the DVSA Program
To reduce the effects of domestic violence and sexual assault by providing:
- Safety and immediate care for victims;
- Advocacy in the judicial, medical and social services systems; and
- Public education to promote awareness and prevention.
What is the DVSA Program?
We believe that every individual has an indisputable right to live in a non-violent environment which enhances his/her opportunity for self determination. Services reflect a holistic approach that empowers, motivates and energizes the needs of individuals.
Actions are taken through this program to help create a community where people can nurture themselves and their children to achieve their fullest potential in security and harmony.
Advocates of SeaView Community Services cooperate with people from law enforcement, medical organizations, and the courts to respond to the needs of victims of sexual assault.
All persons living in the areas of Seward, Moose Pass, Hope and Cooper Landing who are in need of assistance in domestic violence and sexual assault issues are served by the Domestic Violence Sexual Assault Program.
