Founded in 1983, Advocates provides services for victims of domestic and sexual violence, including a 24/7 safeline, a confidential safehouse, support groups, support for victims in abusive situations, as well as a robust social change program to prevent violence before it happens. We also collaborate with schools, businesses, and community organizations. With greater awareness and developing necessary skills together, we can improve equity and make everyone safer.
In 2021, we opened Brighter World Child Advocacy Center (CAC) which provides family-focused services for children and families affected by neglect, sexual and/or physical abuse. We bring together and coordinate with child protective services, law enforcement, prosecutors, advocates, and medical and mental health professionals to provide a coordinated response to victims and their caregivers. Our goal is to create a safe environment where healing can begin and justice for victims can be found.
