24 - hour accompaniments to hospitals, courts and law enforcement agencies
We will be there to support you when or where ever in Hudson County you need our service(s).
This service is available every day to individuals who have experienced a sexual assault within the last 5 days. Our Confidential Sexual Violence Advocates respond to the hospital (Christ Hospital or Hoboken Medical Center) and support survivors during this difficult time.
A person who responds and understands. These are compassionate and trusting individuals who received special training. They are available 24-hours, and are ready to listen, support and provide helpful resources. A CSVA person provides non-judgmental support and options in the form of crisis intervention via a 24-hour hotline and/or medical and legal accompaniments.
