What can I expect from an advocate?

Community sexual assault programs provide the following services to survivors:

  • Information, Referral and Awareness
  • Crisis Intervention
  • General Advocacy
  • Legal Advocacy
  • Medical Advocacy
  • System Coordination
  • Support Groups
  • Therapy

Advocates at these programs are trained in the areas of sexual assault and victim advocacy and will make every effort to identify and meet your needs and answer your questions.

The services provided by community sexual assault programs are confidential, free, and focused on your best interest. If you call a program after hours, you will likely be directed to a 24-hour crisis line that is answered by a trained volunteer or staff member. The crisis line can provide information and referrals, as well as help you get connected to a sexual assault advocate.
