About

The Advocate Program is the Rape Crisis Center for Erie County and can offer many services to any individual in the county who is affected by the trauma of family violence, rape and sexual assault. The most valuable service we provide is 24 hour crisis intervention to assault victims, significant others and their family in 11 emergency departments in Erie County. To become a part of the Advocate Team we have an extensive 40-hour training program which provides information on the dynamics of domestic violence, rape and sexual assault, the medical and legal aspects a survivor encounters, and the emotional impact a survivor may experience after a sexual assault or domestic violence incident.

Our Volunteers serve on a team of 30+ trained and certified individuals that provide that support to survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, family violence and elder abuse in the emergency departments.
