Side by Side is a domestic violence crisis team that works with the Cherry Hill
& Haddonfield Police Departments and the Camden County
Women's Center to provide strong and caring support for
victims of domestic violence.
The Side by Side team is a group of trained
volunteers who provide 24-hour coverage seven
days-per-week. Team members are taught to assist victims
and their children through crisis intervention.
Each intervention begins when the police respond to a
domestic violence call. The victim is met at the police
station by a certified Side by Side volunteer who offers
emotional support as well as information about legal rights,
court processes, and community resources or referrals as
needed. Side by Side recognizes the need to empower victims
to break the cycle of violence.
If you or someone you know is a victim of abuse in
immediate danger, please call 9-1-1.
