program at SUNY Fredonia. The program is coordinated through the Counseling Center

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.
