BATP has advocacy staff who are specially trained to assist with filing protective orders, making police reports, guide you in gathering necessary documentation to assist with criminal justice proceedings; court accompaniment – assistance maneuvering through the court and criminal justice process and to interface with attorneys as requested. BATP does not provide an attorney nor do we have one on staff.
Shelter services are available for adults and children who have been a victim of domestic violence, stranger and non-stranger sexual assault, and human trafficking and can benefit from a safe, supportive and temporary place to live. Shelter includes on-site childcare, transportation, food, clothing, and case management along with life skills classes such as nutrition, parenting skills, employment and more. Caseworkers help adults to establish goals and provide support through the journey of healing and charting a life direction. Caseworkers also assist by interfacing with Children’s Protective Services/Adult Protective Services, employers, school systems, etc. When these entities are involved BATP has a Children’s Caseworker who assists children with age appropriate case work services and their parents with issues to aid in the child development. Residential Caseworkers assist clients in obtaining such things food stamps, Medicaid, TANF, social security cards and drivers license. BATP has volunteers who often do special projects for children such as movie night, outside sports, field trips and academic tutoring.
