A primary goal of Prevail’s services is to increase safety for individual seeking services. This includes physical, emotional, and technology safety. Creating a specific safety plan with each individual is a priority at Prevail. After creating a safety plan, advocates will continue to converse with clients to try to continue to increase and/or maintain safety. Safety plans can include what to do during an incident, how to properly document ongoing incidents of concern, identification of support people, individual rights, protective order information, coping mechanisms to use to calm down in a stressful environment, and more.
