The Behavioral and Human Services Division collaborates with area government, law enforcement, and domestic violence agencies to provide a comprehensive array of free services for victims of domestic violence.
The Intimate Violence Enhanced Services Team (INVEST) identifies and intervenes in the potentially most lethal domestic violence cases. The team is comprised of a City of Jacksonville planning technician, two contracted Hubbard House advocates, and specially-trained and assigned Jacksonville Sheriff's Office (JSO) officers.
The Team's efforts are complemented by the INVEST Collaborative, which serves as an advisory council to the INVEST staff, sets policy for INVEST, and insures extensive coordination of services through its broad membership of area government, law enforcement and social service provider agencies.
The INVEST Collaborative is in partnership with Hubbard House, JSO and other criminal justice organizations and victim assistance agencies. The client participation is completely voluntary and confidential.
