Message to Survivor

A Safe Port in the Storm

You have rights when you’ve been sexually assaulted. Our advocates respond 24/7 to medical and judicial facilities in Lake, Porter and LaPorte Counties. They are professionally trained to support survivors and help them navigate the complex waters of “what now?”

Advocates provide the continuum of care and:

  • Support survivors emotionally and discuss coping strategies
  • Explain and accompany during medical process
  • Address immediate needs and make a safety plan
  • Give information on legal rights and criminal justice proceedings
  • Assist with victim compensation paperwork
  • Educate family and friends on how to support loved one effected by trauma
  • Provide confidentiality. Communication is privileged.
  • Stay with you through the entire journey
