Victim Advocacy Services

Victim Advocacy provides protection and guidance for those individuals facing situations of domestic violence, crime, and trafficking.

For refugees and immigrants adapting to life in a new country, Domestic Violence (DV) poses unique challenges, including the fear of deportation, loss of custody, and homelessness. ECDC’s Safe Journey program is committed to taking a stand against DV, recognizing that globally, 1 in 3 women has experienced intimate partner violence or non-partner sexual violence. Often unreported due to fear or dependency, DV not only causes physical harm but also leads to mental health issues and has social and economic costs.

Our program provides vital support to DV survivors, including referrals to counseling services, mental health assistance, and Social Service Agencies. We also offer advocacy services to help victims navigate systems and access the help they need. Through cultural orientation workshops and gender equality training, we aim to empower individuals and promote healthy relationships, ultimately creating a safer and more supportive environment for all.
