What is an Application Assistant?
An Application Assistant is someone who provides counseling, referral or other direct services to victims of stalking, sexual assault and/or domestic violence as part of their job or volunteer work, and has completed the Address Confidentiality Program training and certification process.
What do Application Assistants do?
Application Assistants meet with potential program participants and make program referrals. Application Assistants determine whether an applicant is eligible for program services and assesses the program fit of potential applicants. They also assist applicants with completing the application and submit it to the ACP once complete. ACP staff do not meet with potential participants for enrollment.
