The Victim Support Team has fostered successful community collaborations that increase services to victims of domestic violence and preserve partnerships with community businesses and the Seattle Police Department. Some of the existing partnerships include:
Through the Seattle Police Foundation VST annually receives a $5,000 training grant. This grant makes it possible for VST to deliver a superb 50-hour training academy twice per year, and on going monthly trainings for the volunteers. VST also recently received a Seattle Police Foundation grant for $3,000 to help VST purchase emergency taxi vouchers for victims who need to relocate out of the city limits.
The Emergency Feeding Program supplies VST with family-sized food bags and smaller snack packs for families in crisis.
Two representatives from New Beginnings provide domestic violence training to the VST volunteers. The VST program also coordinates services for domestic violence victims with New Beginnings as well several other DV agencies in the area.
