WHAT IS A "PERSONAL ADVOCATE"?
All of us have life goals. Even if right now it's painful to dream or it seems useless, deep down you still hold on to a vision of what you want your life to be. And you're not crazy or naive for holding onto that vision, for still holding on to your life goals.
You just need some help.
And that's ok, because all of us need help. More importantly, all of us (even you) deserve help.
So, Defy provides you with your own Personal Advocate: a person dedicated to helping you reach your life goals by helping you defy the obstacles standing between your vision for your life and where you are right now.
Your Personal Advocate gives you one-on-one mentorship to help you craft, plan, and reach your goals for your:
- and life.
They don't simply check-in with you every now and then; and they sure don't just stand over shoulder to keep tabs on you. They walk with you through your journey as a helping hand.
WHY DO YOU OFFER THIS?
Your Personal Advocate doesn't simply focus on what has already happened in your life. They focus on what is coming next in your life.
Finding safety is the vital and most important step in removing domestic abuse from your life, but it is only the first step.
If you don't build up every area of your life, domestic abuse can find its way back in.
So we created the Personal Advocate program to help you go past the first step, to help you build a strong foundation and a strong life, to help you ensure you never go through domestic abuse ever again.
THIS SOUNDS NICE BUT WHAT CAN YOU REALLY DO FOR ME?
Here's just a few ways your Personal Advocate can help you reach your goals:
/ THEY CAN HELP YOU CRAFT YOUR RESUME AND PREPARE FOR JOB INTERVIEWS.
/ THEY CAN ACCOMPANY YOU TO COURT AND SIT ALONGSIDE YOU; THEY CAN BE THERE FOR YOU WHEN MAYBE NO ONE ELSE CAN BE.
/ THEY CAN INTRODUCE YOU TO PARENTING RESOURCES TO HELP YOU REBUILD YOUR FAMILY OR TO HELP YOU BUILD AN UNSHAKABLE FOUNDATION FOR WHEN YOU'RE READY TO START A FAMILY.
/ THEY CAN HELP YOU SEE HOW VALUABLE, STRONG, AND DIGNIFIED YOU TRULY ARE BY LINKING YOU TO DIFFERENT SOCIAL GROUPS OR SERVICES.
