Tri-County Advocacy Partnership receives additional OVW funding

The U.S. Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) has awarded continuation funding to the Tri-County Advocacy Partnership, a collaboration between Maine educational institutions, legal aid providers, and community-based victim services organizations to support survivors of sexual assault, dating violence, and intimate partner violence.

Tri-County Advocacy Partnership provides victim support services and comprehensive legal representation and advocacy in protection from abuse hearings, family law matters, immigration applications, and housing and economic benefits, with the overarching goal of enabling survivors to achieve safety, economic stability, and restoration. 

The partnership, which serves Androscoggin, Franklin, and Oxford counties, includes the USM Muskie School of Public Service, the University of Maine School of Law, the Volunteer Lawyers Project, Pine Tree Legal Assistance, the Immigrant Legal Advocacy Project, Safe Voices, Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Services, and United Somali Women of Maine.
