Personal support and assistance for individuals and victims of crime to ensure healthcare needs are addressed and rights are upheld.
Advocates are available 24 hours a day to support you through the post-assault medical examination experience.
If you phone the SANE Nurse ahead of time, they will contact us to ensure that an advocate is there to support you. If you walk in to the Emergency Room, you may ask for an advocate, and we’ll send an advocate to you.
Additionally we assert and advance your choices and rights, provide assistance in making informed decisions about medical procedures for the purpose of collection and preservation of evidence, provide support at medical exams and appointments, and provide information and assistance in obtaining relevant benefits.
