Advocacy Works

Our advocates at Hope’s Door New Beginning Center are the direct ground support for survivors and are experts on systems that provide local resources, solutions, and other opportunities. We assist survivors in setting goals and developing action plans on how to achieve them. 

What Is an "Advocate"?

Advocates are professionals trained to support survivors of domestic abuse at HDNBC. Advocates offer survivors information, emotional support, help to find resources, and assistance navigating systems (law enforcement, health care, benefits, etc.) to receive justice, protection, compassion, and healing. 

What to Expect

Our advocates work with survivors to find out what they need. We provide free and confidential options that are survivor-centered. Our advocacy solutions range from providing basic needs (such as food, shelter, clothing, and school supplies) to more advanced needs (such as education for budgeting, building resumes, job searches, and job acquisition). We also assist survivors who exit our shelter program with housing solutions, in which rent for an inspected apartment can be provided for one year.
