Finding an Advocate (Someone to Help)

Written by Amy Smith. Posted in Domestic Violence and Law

Going through any legal process, civil or criminal, can
be difficult and complicated. It can be really helpful to
get support from an advocate at your local domestic
violence or rape crisis program. They can help with
emotional support, safety planning, help you find
resources, and explain how things work in your
community. To find the local domestic violence
program, you can call 800-934-9840 or go to
www.odvn.org, click on “Information for Survivors”
then “Ohio Shelter & Program Referral List.” To find
the local rape crisis program, go to: http://www.
oaesv.org/support.html or call 888-886-8388. LGBT
Survivors can also contact the Buckeye Region Anti-
Violence Organization (BRAVO) at 866-86 BRAVO or
go to www.bravo-ohio.org.
