• SAFEPLAN is MOVA’s statewide, court-based program that provides specially trained and certified advocates to help victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking who are seeking protection from abuse. SAFEPLAN Advocates are employed by local community-based domestic violence and sexual assault agencies located in district and probate courts across the state.

    • SAFEPLAN Advocates help victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking plan for their safety and obtain 209A restraining orders, (also called protective orders), and/or 258E harassment prevention orders (HPO) from the court.
    • SAFEPLAN Advocates also provide referrals to local support services, information on legal and safety options and accompany victims to court proceedings. 

    Any agency interested in applying for SAFEPLAN funding should email MOVA to determine their eligibility and the availability of funds. There will not be an open bid for SAFEPLAN services until the spring of 2014.
