Our programs and services inform survivors of their options and support them in their choices.

A cornerstone of our philosophy is respect for the rights of all survivors, including the freedom to decide whether to report to the police the crimes committed against them. We work with survivors of any race, color, creed, religious belief, sexual orientation, or gender identity.

The agency educates the public about the issues surrounding victimization and violence, and provides 24-hour advocacy, safety planning and shelter screening.The center is open Monday-Friday for individuals to meet one-on-one with staff advocates.
