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:



Sexual Assault


Children/Custody and/or Placement


Financial Concerns

Safety/Protection Order

Driver's License

Criminal Record


Privacy Issues

Public Benefits
