How can we help?
Crime victim advocates offer a variety of services, from crisis response and emotional support to resource guides and referrals.
An advocate can assist you in filling out petitions for orders of protection and claims for crime victim compensation. We can help you navigate each step of the criminal justice process and accompany you through any related investigative or medical services.
What can you expect?
Advocates are awarded advocate privilege, meaning they cannot be called to divulge information regarding partner family member assault, sexual assault and stalking to authorities or the court without the adult victim’s consent. You will be treated with empathy, compassion and respect. The path you choose is your own, an advocate is simply there to help you along the way.
