In this section we have provided information about the many different types of advocates that might be available to serve victims in your community. If you are not familiar with the full range of services that are provided in your community, learning more about the organizations that can provide such services will undoubtedly prove beneficial to you in your work. It is important to recognize that that each of these offices and agencies provide a variety of often distinct services to aid victims as they move through the criminal justice and medical systems. Many of these advocates are experts at working with victims of sexual assault, and can be consulted if you have questions about how you can better interact with and respond to victims’ needs. We have also discussed the limits of confidentiality for both victims and victim advocates. It is important that we remain mindful of the implications of these laws in your state.
