Children Who Witness Violence
The Children Who Witness Violence Program has a dedicated direct service advocate responsible for providing services to children who have witnessed violence, through coordination with their parents/caregivers both in the Battered Women's shelters as well as in the community. This program works collaboratively with the Victim Assistance Program (serving Summit County), in responding to emergency calls for service in cases where children witness violence.
This program provides education, crisis intervention, follow up and referral services to children who have witnessed violence as well as their caregivers.
CWWV strives to prevent the short and long term negative impact on children who witness violence.
