We see you. We stand with you.
We are honored to stand with victims and survivors throughout their journey towards healing and continue working for a future with zero-tolerance of domestic and sexual violence in any community.
Feedback from Survivors
“Advocates, thank you for your existence. I honestly do not think I could be making the steps and progress emotionally without you.”
“Advocates saved my life (and my dog’s life) and I could not be more grateful. All of the people that I have encountered who work for Advocates are in exactly the right place.”
“Me trataron excelente. El primer día que llegué me sentí segura, como en casa.” (They treated me excellently. The first day I arrived, I felt safe, like I was at home.)
