NLA Dallas DVP Team Report, Oct. 2013

The DVP Team is putting the finishing touches on our training module for the National Domestic Violence Hotline. Administers and supervisors from the Hotline will be meeting with the Team here in Dallas on Friday, 10-18-13 for a first run through of the Training that the Team has developed. Any changes or additions that may be suggested by the Hotline staff will be done in November and December with the first actual training of Hotline staff at their offices in Austin to be done in January of 2014.

The NLA Dallas DVP Team; Lex, Artemis, Beth, Jim R., Hardy, and Rob have worked very hard on this project for the past year and have developed an excellent training module! They have been outstanding ambassadors of good will from our community. I hope that each of you will take the time to thank them personally the next time that you see them at a meeting, event, or out and about in the community.

New educational, outreach, and advocacy materials have been printed and distributed at the Pride Parade and will be in the run packets at Beyond Vanilla.

Respectfully submitted,
Dennis C Hartzog, M.Ed., LPC
Chairperson, NLA Dallas DVP Team
