The Anew Center (The Salvation Army - Jamestown, NY) provides a local rape crisis/domestic violence helpline (1-800-252-8748) that provides victim advocates. The hotline is available 24 hours a day. Victim advocates are individuals specially trained in crisis intervention, advocacy, and referrals for victims of sexual assault. They can provide a wide variety of services - from someone to talk to, emotional support, accompanying the survivor to the hospital, police department, or any legal proceeding. Advocates do not tell survivors what to do, instead they offer options that are available to survivors. All services are free and confidential. We high encourage survivors to contact an advocate; coping with the aftermath of sexual assault can be a very difficult and confusing process.
