Saving Our Sisters ( S.O.S.)- is a joint effort between the NJDOC and the NJ Department of Law and Public Safety, State Office of Victim-Witness Advocacy to provide service under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). The goals of the S.O.S. program are 1) to reduce the negative impact of past domestic violence and sexual victimization of female inmates and 2) to reduce the risk of future victimization of female victims of domestic violence upon their release from prison. S.O.S. accomplishes this goal by 1) providing specialized in-prison domestic violence/sexual assault counseling and support services in both English and Spanish, and 2) linking S.O.S. program participants to appropriate post release community based support services
