The Network is involved with many projects in the state. The Network believes that it is important to build coordinated relationships statewide to further assist victims of violence and their families.

Training and Technical Assistance: The SDNAFVSA provides training and technical assistance to its member programs through quarterly meetings, training and annual conferences addressing the issues of domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence and stalking.

Law Enforcement Training: Through a grant from the South Dakota Department of Social Services, The Network Against Family Violence and Sexual Assault offers FREE TRAINING FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT AND PROSECUTORS on responding to domestic violence and sexual assault cases. These trainings meet the state law requirements.

The training team consists of a law enforcement officer, a prosecutor and a victim advocate. The team provides a 6 hour training on sexual assault and domestic violence issues. The team goes to the local communities and jurisdictions.

If you are interested in having a law enforcement training on domestic violence and/or sexual assault in your community, please Contact Us. For more information on training classes this year, please visit the Links and Resources page on this site.

Rural Outreach Services: Rural outreach services are offered in many counties in South Dakota where there have not been services for battered women, their children and victims of violence. For more information, please contact The Network office.

Legislative updates: The Network provides weekly updates during the South Dakota Legislative session for the membership. Federal legislative updates are provided for the membership periodically.

Emergency Services Funding: The Network has limited funding to assist victims working with member agencies with emergency services needs such as bus tickets or gas cards to relocate to a safer location, hotel/motel rooms if there is a not a shelter in their area or they are not able to stay in the shelter, replacement of items that are broken during an assault, and other needs that are related to the abuse. To access funding, victims need to contact their nearest member agency for assistance and have no other resources to meet the emergency services need.

Perspectives Publication: Members receive a quarterly publication from The Network which provides educational information about sexual assault and domestic violence.
