WASHINGTON, NJ – For almost 40 years, DASACC (Domestic Abuse & Sexual Assault Crisis Center) has been working to end sexual assault in Warren County and is excited to be expanding its 24/7 hotline, domestic and sexual assault advocates and counseling services to the Hunterdon County community.
Outreach offices will be located in Flemington.
Along with DASACC’s expansion into Hunterdon County, the agency is excited to introduce its new local Hunterdon County staff – Rochelle Ostenfeld, the Confidential Sexual Violence Advocate Coordinator (CSVA Coordinator); Erin Pirog, the Domestic Violence Response Team Coordinator (DVRT Coordinator); Brianna Dembiec, the Counseling Program Manager & Sexual Violence Counselor; Alexandra Oskam, Domestic Violence Counselor; and Colleen Torrey, Legal Advocate.
“We are so honored to be able to continue to serve the community,” said Jill Zinckgraf, DASACC’s Executive Director. “The advocates and counselors that are serving the Hunterdon community come to DASACC collectively with a wealth of experience, knowledge and dedication. We are fortunate to add them to our team.”
Last year DASACC served over 935 women, children and men impacted by violence including 4,100 bed nights at DASACC’s emergency shelter. Over 2,200 crisis calls were answered by those accessing DASACC’s 24/7 hotline. DASACC is committed to providing stellar services to the Hunterdon & Warren County communities and to all survivors who identify themselves being impacted by domestic violence and/or sexual assault.
The agency will continue to serve its mission to help, serve, and advocate for those impacted by interpersonal violence, to be proactive regarding its prevention, and to create positive change. DASACC provides services to all victims regardless of their age, race, gender identity, socioeconomic status, immigration status, ability level or sexual orientation, or religion.
