Legal Advocacy

The Healing Center is able to offer a program that provides legal advocacy to survivors of sexual abuse or assault who need help with a civil legal issue. We will evaluate all calls or applications. If eligibility requirements are met, we can refer the survivor to an attorney at Legal Action who may be able to offer legal advice or, in some cases, legal representation. These services are provided at no financial cost to the survivor. The legal problem does *not* need to be directly linked to the sexual assault or abuse.

Some of the areas where this program may be beneficial include:

 

Housing

Sexual Assault

Stalking

Children/Custody and/or Placement

Disabilities/Accommodations

Financial Concerns

Safety/Protection Order

Driver's License

Criminal Record

Employment

Privacy Issues

Public Benefits
