Twice a year an intensive 6-week training course prepares bilingual volunteers for work on the 24-hour hotline. Training is given on the nature and incidence of domestic violence, rape, sexual assault, child abuse, and other related issues. Volunteers learn techniques for crisis intervention and counseling, and details about community resources on a regular basis. When on hotline duty, volunteers are backed up by a staff counselor. When not covering the hotline, these volunteers provide valuable help and advocacy to clients in court, hospitals, schools, and social service agencies.
Every year during Domestic Violence Awareness Month (October), KAFSC organizes a silent march in partnership with local police, churches, various sister agencies and other community-based organizations to raise awareness about domestic violence and advance the cause of social justice for its victims. Participants march in silence through the streets of Flushing protected by police escorts, to honor the many lives lost to domestic violence and reaffirm our commitment to its eradication.
Our education and outreach consist of community workshops, speaking at local events, appearing on radio and TV, and regular articles in the Korean press. We visit schools, churches, hospitals, police stations, and other nonprofit and civic organizations. Subjects cover a broad range including parenting skills, communication skills, education, dating relationships, anger management, conflict resolution, sexuality, family dynamics, and other topical issues, as well as information on our programs and services. All our workshops are free and open to the public.
