Spotlight - Sexual Assault Response Advocates
Marion County's Victim Assistance Program serves thousands of victims each year, providing support to victims of child abuse, stalking, sexual assault, elder abuse, domestic violence, and homicide. Sexual Assault Response Advocates are highly trained volunteers who provide competent, caring services to victims of sexual assault.
Every survivor's experience is unique, and trauma is deeply personal. Volunteer advocates provide immediate response and support to victims of sexual assault, providing an important first step in the healing process. The 2024 Sexual Assault Response Advocate training will begin Monday, January 9, 2024. Applications must be received by Friday, December 22nd.
