Serving survivors of crime & abuse
For a survivor of assault, human trafficking, abuse, or other crime, it is a very traumatic experience that can leave you with serious physical and mental challenges. You are not alone. Our REACH Center has advocates available 24/7 to assist with trauma, medical support, and navigating the legal system.
Our REACH Center provides a 24-hour helpline for survivors of abuse and sexual assault. Our trained teams provide crisis counseling via phone and accompaniments for medical emergencies.
Advocates are available to meet with survivors to provide guidance, emotional support, and coordination of services. They are your bridge to support, working with agencies to help and to provide accompaniments for legal, medical and other necessary appointments.
Find care and support centered around you.
If you or someone you know has experienced assault, crime, human trafficking, violence, or abuse... you are not alone.
