Case Managers also run the Financial Empowerment Group* in order to help victims learn how to save and manage money for independence.

Our crisis advocates are in the DVRC offices from 8 am. – 5 pm. every weekday. These advocates work by appointment, but will always strive to accommodate any walk-ins that come into the Family Advocacy Center. Crisis advocates assist victims in filing temporary orders of protection, long-term safety planning, and provide an explanation of community resources that exist for domestic violence victims. These advocates can also make referrals to community partners such as Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANE), New Mexico Legal Aid (NMLA), and Children, Youth and Families Department (CYFD). The communal office setting allows our entire team to collaborate together about the needs of the victim, and brainstorm creative solutions to any foreseen or unforeseen roadblocks that could be encountered between the victim and the life that he/she would like to move towards. Our advocates understand that every victim’s situation is entirely individual, and are trained in the trauma- informed approach to create a supportive environment for every experience.
