Advocacy Services

Advocacy means working in partnership with survivors, focused on safety and support, to help rebuild connections, agency, and control of their lives. Advocacy services are free of cost and are survivor-driven and trauma-informed. Advocacy services are available for both residential (in-shelter) and non-residential survivors. To make an appointment for advocacy services, contact the Outreach Advocate at 906-524-7079.
