Hello, IAmA Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Shelter Advocate!
I am an domestic violence and sexual assault advocate for victims. I mainly work in a shelter and assist people with information on recovering from domestic violence and sexual assault as well as human trafficking, stalking, child abuse, and elder abuse. I also respond to ERs for rape exams (including for prisoners and children). I'm here to talk about the things I've experienced as a responder and shelter worker, give information on how you can be an effective supporter, and to break the silence! Ask me anything!
If your a victim of domestic violence or sexual assault and are looking for resources, or safety please call 1-800-799-SAFE (7233) for the U.S. National Domestic Violence Hotline. Help is out there! I'm sorry but please don't reach out to me on here, I'm afraid I can't guarantee a timely response and your safety is an immediate concern.
