The AmeriCorps Detroit Urban Safety Program has a team of advocates to reach out to survivors of domestic violence. Our advocates are stationed in police precincts throughout Detroit. We follow up with survivors after a police report to provide information on the criminal justice process, personal protection orders, and develop safety plans. In our first year, our team of three advocates wrote 340 petitions for PPOs! We have expanded from three precincts to seven and need your support to continue this important work.

Our advocate team is dedicated to helping survivors eliminate barriers and live lives free of violence.  Our team is made up of Wayne State University social work interns and AmeriCorps national service volunteers. With the money raised, we plan to purchase supplies (coloring books, art supplies), cost of police service of PPOs, and transportation cost. Please consider your participation in our fundraiser a donation to eliminating domestic violence in Detroit.
