Victim and Survivor Advocacy

Victim and Survivor Advocacy

Advocacy for those affected by sexual violence is at the heart of everything we do.

Crisis advocacy

Victim Advocates are on-call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to assist victims of sexual assault at both Bronson Battle Creek and Oaklawn hospitals and all police departments. In partnership with the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners, victims of sexual assault receive immediate, expert care in a time of crisis.

Court advocacy

If you're attending court proceedings in the criminal or civil justice systems, we can help with Court Accompaniment and Advocacy. Our specially trained staff can provide:

  • Emotional support for victims and their families.
  • Information or referrals about court matters.
  • Support by attending meetings with prosecutors or other attorneys when appropriate.
