Advocacy

General Advocacy
The journey toward healing from the trauma of sexual assault begins by speaking with one of KCSARC’s Client Care Specialists who will provide emotional support and assistance to determine on-going needs. A Client Care Specialist will talk with you and help you to identify services KCSARC can help with, such as medical advocacy, information and referral, legal advocacy, therapy, parent support, or 24-hour support through our Resource Line. Client Care Specialists will also provide referrals to other organizations in the community that can assist you.

Our Family Services program is also available to family, friends or partners who are impacted by the sexual assault of a loved one. There is no fee for KCSARC services to victims/survivors or their related support people.

Medical Evaluations and Advocacy
KCSARC works in cooperation with Harborview Center for Sexual Assault and Traumatic Stress, and Evergreen Health which provides forensic medical evaluations. Generally, medical evaluations are performed as requested by police, prosecutors or parents based on the type of abuse that has occurred. Emergency room personnel of King County area Hospitals are prepared to give victims KCSARC's Medical Packet and to immediately connect to KCSARC's Resource Line. 

Please see Evergreen Health's website, and Harborview Medical Center for the services of their Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE).
