AWARE focuses on two priorities: crisis intervention and prevention education. Advocates are first responders in crisis situations involving domestic and sexual violence, operating a 24 hour hotline where callers can speak to an advocate who can inform them of their legal rights and options, be connected to other community resources, and provide immediate necessary assistance which may include access to financial assistance and safe haven. Victims experiencing abuse who call our hotline, or are referred by police, family, or friends, need immediate and concentrated assistance, support, and information. AWARE advocates can provide services and support from the initial emergency to long term planning and support. AWARE also provides in-depth legal advocacy services and support and information to families of victims and survivors of domestic and sexual violence.
