An assault creates a crisis—both for you and the people closest to you. It is important to remember that it is not your fault; no matter what the circumstances, you did not deserve to be assaulted.
We at Crisis Intervention & Advocacy Center are here to support both you and the people close to you. We know the courage and strength it takes to survive. Recovery can be a lengthy and difficult process. Time, support, and talking with understanding people are all important parts of healing.
Our services exist because many women are assaulted. We provide domestic abuse and sexual assault services:
24-hour Crisis Line (toll free) 1-800-400-4884 & 1-800-550-0004.
For someone to whom you may talk; someone who will listen.
Trained peer counselors who will talk with you by phone or in person at a neutral location (away from your home). They also have information on community resources.
For you and your children. You can have time to yourself in order to rest and plan your next step.
Meetings are held for you to talk, gain support, and share ideas.
To necessary doctors or hospital, court proceedings, or other considered circumstances.
ALL SERVICES ARE FREE, VOLUNTARY AND CONFIDENTIAL
Please call us anytime, day or night, to discuss any concerns, fears, or questions you may have.
We, at Crisis Intervention & Advocacy Center, care about what has happened and want to help in any way we can. No one deserves to be assaulted.
