Our mission is to empower individuals, families, and our communities impacted by crime through compassionate and confidential victim centered care.
Victim Advocacy Services (VAS) provides free and confidential services for victims and survivors of sexual assault and sexual violence. We also provide services to friends and family affected by the sexual assault or acts of sexual violence against their loved ones. Free services are also provided for innocent victims of all other crimes.
Victim Advocacy Services maintains a 24-hour sexual violence hotline for past and present survivors of sexual assault and violence. Staff and trained volunteers are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to answer questions, provide crisis and supportive counseling, offer community referrals, and accompany individuals to local emergency and/or police departments. We can give you support at the hospital, police station, throughout police and court proceedings, and your recovery.
