COLUMBIA — In a state among the worst in the nation in incidents of domestic violence, Statehouse lawmakers have taken a step toward teaching young people how to avoid such behavior.
The South Carolina Senate passed legislation this week that would allow minors as young as 16 to get a court order of protection — without their parents’ consent — when they are victims of domestic violence.
Additionally, the bill, which was approved unanimously, would create a dating violence education program for the state’s middle and high schools.

SAFE Homes-Rape Crisis Coalition will offer a special volunteer training program for domestic violence and sexual assault crisis counselors beginning March 14, 2016 – April 5, 2016! Agenda coming soon!!!!
This volunteer job may be perfect for you!
Our agency provides a 24-hour crisis hot line for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. We serve Spartanburg, Cherokee, and Union counties.
We need Volunteer Victim Advocates to be on-call after office hours, weekends and holidays during shifts they choose each month. These volunteers may also work in our emergency shelter.
Domestic Violence volunteers respond to telephone calls only. Sexual Assault volunteers respond to telephone calls and hospital referrals. Victims of sexual assault who report to law enforcement go to a local hospital for a forensic rape examination and SAFE Homes-Rape Crisis Coalition provides accompaniment and advocacy during this process.
All prospective volunteers attend an extensive 30-hour training program to prepare them for the demands of this position. Training includes an agency overview, dynamics of domestic and sexual violence, current law, crisis intervention, shelter and hospital procedures, listening skills, and resources and referrals.
You can make a difference in the life of a victim of domestic violence or sexual assault. Come and find out how. Call Jamie Hughes or Karen Martin-Wilkins at 583-9803 for more information or to sign up for the class. We hope you will join us!
This training has applied for VSP certification hours through the Office of the Crime Victims’Ombudsman and the Office of Victim Services Education and Certification (OVSEC).

Spartanburg County Domestic Violence Coordinating Council
Whenever there’s an allegation of domestic abuse, defenders of the accused bring up due process. In light of Ray Rice being cut by the Baltimore Ravens on Monday, hours after TMZ published a video of the running back assaulting his wife in an elevator, consider the completely undue process Janay Palmer has endured over the past several months. Consider how much hurt and humiliation it took for this sorry semblance of a resolution to be reached:
After years of budget cuts, domestic and sexual violence programs have been forced to reduce services and victims are feeling the impact. The Congressionally-mandated sequester cuts are now taking effect, further decimating the resources that victims need to escape and heal from violence and abuse. Please join us in calling on Congress to end the sequester and ensure that lifesaving services will continue to be available to victims of domestic and sexual violence!
