Safe at Home Program Assistants
What is an Program Assistant?
A Program Assistant is someone who provides counseling, referrals, or other direct services to victims of domestic violence, stalking, human trafficking, or sexual assault as part of their job or volunteer work, and has completed the Safe at Home training and certification process. Trainings both online and in person are not yet available, but will be in the coming months. If you would like to receive an email when trainings are available, please contact SafeAtHome@utah.gov.
What do Program Assistants do?
Program Assistants meet with potential program participants, assist with completing the application, and make referrals. Program Assistants determine whether an applicant is eligible for program services and assess whether the program would be a good fit for a victim they are working with. They also assist applicants with completing the application and submit it to the Safe at Home Program once the application is complete. Victims are required to meet with a certified application assistant in order to enroll in the program. Applying directly to the Safe at Home Program without an outside program assistant is not possible.
