Bilingual Domestic Violence Program Training offered

Posted by on December 1, 2008

The Bilingual Domestic Violence Program at Lutheran Settlement House will be offering its next 40 Hour Domestic Volunteer Training during January 2009.

The purpose of this training is both to educate participants about domestic violence and to prepare participants to volunteer or work at a domestic violence agency in the Philadelphia area.  This training is also open to professionals who want to increase their knowledge about domestic violence and skill in working with domestic violence survivors, and who do not plan to volunteer or work at a domestic violence agency.  The cost for professionals who do not plan to volunteer with an agency $225.  The training is free for volunteers.

The project is also looking for volunteers to help answer the Philadelphia Domestic Violence Hotline, and to assist with community education and outreach, counseling, translation, court accompaniment, and other projects.  It is in particular need of volunteers who are bilingual and/or are able to volunteer during daytime hours.

The training will run for two weeks in January between January 7th and January 16th.

If you are interested in attending in your capacity as a professional, email Susanna Gilbertson or call 215-426-8610 x240 by December 15th.

If you are interested in volunteering with the program and are interested in attending the training, email Jacqueline Berry at or call her at 215-426-8610 x274 by December 5th.

LSH  is located at 1340 Frankford Avenue in Philadelphia.
