How can we help?
Domestic or sexual violence can disrupt anyone’s life at any time. Recovery from the trauma of abuse is a journey; the Support Center can help victims and survivors every step of the way. Trained advocates are available to help victims explore their options and make educated and informed decisions about how they wish to recover and move forward in their lives. For some, that means pursuing orders of protection or filing criminal charges. Having a Support Center Advocate accompany them through the court and criminal processes is a service we offer. For others, just having a supportive person available to talk to is all the support they need. We can help there, too. Advocates also assist victims to access other community resources that may be helpful to them on the path to recovery including:
- public benefits
- child support
- family services
- medical care
- job skills and support
- help finding somewhere safe to live
All Support Center services are free of charge and confidential by law.
