Victim Advocate

Advocates are available to assist victims in making informed decisions about medical, law enforcement, and court processes and will act as a liaison between the victim and other social service agencies.  Advocates provide supportive counseling that includes safety planning, education on the dynamics of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking, assistance in establishing an Action Plan and setting personal goals, and providing information and referrals.
