Assistant Direct Services Coordinator Sylvia realizes that everyone may know Mariska Hargitay from her role in Law and Order: SVU as Olivia Benson, but many don’t know that she is also an advocate for survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, and child abuse.
March 2017, the North Township Trustee Frank J. MrVan hosted a “No More Secrets Symposium” where Erin shared her story and encouraged Indiana to speak up for children and pass Senate Bill 355, Erin’s Law, requiring schools to provide child sexual abuse prevention education to students EVERY YEAR…and Indiana passed the bill.
Stay tuned for our exciting new Saturday program, “Think First Story-time” with our School Advocate, Miss Tami. She will help your little ones to ‘think first’ about the valuable lessons featured in the selected books.
School Education Advocate Tami was amazed to discover Rosa Parks used her voice to speak against sexual assault years before the Montgomery Bus Boycott.
Our advocates are available to you! We will be working remotely from home over the course of the next few weeks. However, we will not be stopping services!
