We work directly with victims who have been sexually assaulted or abused through counseling and coordinating with local resources to get them the help they need.
We provide a 24-hour hotline, court and hospital accompaniment, legal advocacy and information and referrals to available community resources. We provide direct services to survivors and their support systems
Every survivor who chooses to go to the hospital for a forensic exam has the right to state-certified advocate accompaniment. HCCC trains and sends advocates around the clock to meet survivors at the hospital and provide support during the exam. An advocate is dispatched when our center is contacted by the hospital telling us a survivor has arrived or is in route. Advocates stay the duration of the exam and provide support and resources to both the survivor and any loved ones who may have accompanied them.
Ways we help include: filling out paperwork, providing community resources, giving emotional support and ensuring that no one goes through the process alone.
24/7 Phone Support
Our trained advocates are ready to take your call through our in-house, 24-hour hotlines. We’re here to help, and your safety is our priority. All calls and chats are answered by a trained advocate and are completely anonymous and confidential. Everyone is welcome to call or chat—not only survivors, but also their friends and family, as well as anyone with a question about sexual assault or how to support a survivor in their own lives.
