What is the Victim Advocacy Program?

The Victim Advocate program was established in order to provide support for victims of domestic violence and/or sexual assault.

Also the program provides a safe and reliable liaison if there is an investigation and case review.

  • Crisis Intervention
  • Emergency Shelter
  • Safety Planning
  • Orders of protection
  • Liaison between victim and unit/other providers
  • Information and referral
  • Legal/medical/investigative accompaniment
  • Transportation
  • Referral to outside agencies

Please contact your Victim Advocate immediately if you have any questions and/or concerns at 256-955-6904 or 256-617-3204, Mon - Fri 7am - 4:30pm, or at 256-508-6613 after hours (24/7).
