Honoring You: Supporting Your Wellness
Victim advocates make a profound difference in the lives of victims and survivors of crime and crisis. On a daily basis, advocates listen empathetically to victims, offering non-judgmental support and empowering survivors in their healing journey. This amazing work can also take a toll on advocates’ well-being through constant exposure to trauma.
During the NOVA 44th Annual Training Event and throughout the year, we at NOVA are committed to honoring all victim advocates by supporting and promoting your wellness. Please join us at any and all of the following self-care events offered during our training event:
|DAILY MORNING WALKS||OUTDOOR YOGA||CALM APP||RUNNING GROUPS|
