The Advocacy & Resource Center of Sheridan exists to empower people affected by domestic violence, sexual assault and other forms of violence to realize lives of choice, safety and freedom.

No judgement. No pressure. Just help.

Not only do we help victims regarding legal courses of action, we help them get on their feet with free services that help secure safety and self-sustainability after victimization.

In other words, if you feel like you have to stay in a bad situation because you don’t have a place to stay or a way to get groceries, we’re here to help you with all those obstacles.

 

Everyone who walks through our doors is greeted by trained and qualified advocates.

You’ll be heard in a confidential, safe and non-judgmental environment.

 

We help victims of abuse in many ways including:

Informing them of their rights 

Showing the options and choices available to them

Connecting them with resources

Offering them legal assistance

 

By knowing their rights and having advocacy services available to them, victims of crime are less likely to feel victimized by the system, more likely to cooperate with the justice process and more likely to feel satisfied with the resolution of their cases (regardless of the outcome).

 

Our advocates walk victims through the criminal justice system and inform them of their right to: information, protection, input and restitution. 

 

Advocates will assist with all steps of the criminal justice process including:

Attending court on the victim’s behalf

Providing jail release notification

Assistance applying for Crime Victim Compensation.
