Victim advocates provide information about medical care and meet survivors at the hospital for support and advocacy.
A victim advocate can support you to get a forensic examination done by an expertly trained Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) at the hospital.
Support through the Legal System
A victim advocate can provide referrals to seek legal advice and information, as well as offer support in making informed decisions about your legal rights. An advocate will always respect your decision to report or not to report to law enforcement.
