IF YOU ARE A VICTIM of a crime, the criminal justice system can be scary, complicated and overwhelming at times. Our advocates are available to help you through this process and help you connect with other resources and agencies in the area. You do not have to have contact with law enforcement to receive help. We are here to offer confidential support and advocacy. Contact us even if you just have questions or want to talk about your current situation. An advocate can help with safety plans, discuss your options, explain what could happen if you made a report, or assist in petitioning for a personal protection order if needed. Whatever the case may be, an advocate does not make decisions for you, but may help you sort out what is happening, help you plan and help you find solutions. To meet with an advocate, it is recommended to call for an appointment, although walk-ins are welcome.
