Legal Advocacy

The legal advocate provides guidance and support for victims of sexual assault and abuse as they go through the legal system. As a victim of a violent crime in Illinois, they are entitled to advocacy services. The legal advocate also works closely with the State's Attorney's Office and is available to help with questions relating to court and provide emotional support.

 

  Legal Advocacy Services Include:

 

 

 

 

Medical Advocacy

 

Medical advocates are 40-hour trained volunteers who respond to the hospital to provide emotional support, clothing, and information regarding hospital procedures. Advocates help educate the victim about their options when it comes to hospital procedures and pressing charges. The advocate serves as a liason between the victim, the police, and ER personnel. Services are also available for the victim's family and significant others. Advocates and staff respond to hospital calls 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

 

 

If you have been sexually assaulted, please go to your nearest hospital

and an RSAC advocate will be notified.
