4 Things Victim Advocates Want You To Know
- They are here to help! When speaking with different Victim Advocate Programs in Bonneville, Bannock, and Twin Falls Counties, they all emphasized they wanted people to know that they are not alone in whatever struggles they are dealing with. Their programs are designed to help those in need.
- They cannot operate on their own. They really appreciate their, “Big Heroes” which are community donors, businesses, grantors, and volunteers.
- They help make it easier to report any kind of abuse. They are aware how scary it can be to report abuse, especially for a child. They work directly with law enforcement, and can be the bridge between the victim and police officers, to help make the victim feel more comfortable.
- If they are not the organization that can help directly, they will know someone who can. They want people to come to them when they feel they need to. If that particular program doesn’t specialize in that specific type of case, they can point you in the right direction to get you the help you need.
