Our Protective Services Coordinator, Cydney, joined this important event organized by our friends Solutions Oriented Addiction Response: SOAR WV yesterday, bringing awareness around harm reduction options.

Substance use disorder is deeply connected to domestic violence advocacy work. Substance use in a violent situation can escalate the situation dramatically, can be used as a coping mechanism by those involved, and is a tactic of coercive control used by perpetrators of violence.

This Labor Day, we recognize the incredible amount of lifesaving work (both paid and unpaid) that domestic violence advocates undertake in order to support the survivors who depend on them. Share this post or tag a local DV organization in the comments to help us thank them for their work. 💜

We are thrilled to congratulate our amazing Protective Services Coordinator, Cydney Fields, on being crowned Mrs. West Virginia 2021! Cydney's platform is domestic violence and child victimization, and we're so proud of the work she's doing for WV.

Cydney is a daughter of West Virginia having been born and raised in Mingo County, the heart of the coalfields. Cydney and her husband, Sergeant First Class (SFC) Joshua Fields, live in Scott Depot, WV with their daughter Isabella and son Maddox. Their blended and blessed family keeps them busy navigating college with their daughter, running to sporting events with their son, and supporting one another as a military family.

Cydney earned her bachelor’s and master’s in social work from Concord University in Athens, WV and is a licensed graduate social worker (LGSW) with the West Virginia Coalition Against Domestic Violence. She has had a passion for children, always working to make the state safer for families. As a social worker, Cydney has worked statewide and nationally, educating others through training, policy development, and public awareness events about the impact of violence on adults and children. She specializes in rural community resource development by understanding the challenges faced by those living in areas where access to resources are limited. This platform isn’t just a career but a passion that Cydney is eager to promote on the state level and national level.

Outside of her career, Cydney and her family enjoy being outdoors, attending baseball games, and volunteering with their church. Cydney will never turn down the opportunity to dance and sing with others.
