DV Institute

Group of diverse community members with a woman trainer

Our Domestic Violence Institute educates professionals and volunteers to work with survivors.

Dawn’s Domestic Violence Institute offers training aimed at providing professionals, volunteers and community partners with the information they need to advocate for survivors of domestic violence. Guided by principles of trauma-informed advocacy, each session offers content and skills-based curriculum so we can all reduce violence in our community. Dawn’s Domestic Violence Institute meets Washington state requirements for domestic violence advocates’ continuing education.
