In the Forensic Nursing and Advocacy program, specialized nurses and trained first responders work together to help victims of rape, sexual assault, and human trafficking. We provide services and support to women and people of all backgrounds when they come to us for help. The nurse cares for their medical needs and collects forensic evidence, while the adovcate comforts the victim, provides resources, and ensures she has a safety plan in place. We work closely with law enforcement as first responders to provide these services in the Austin community.
As an advocate, my role is to comfort the survivors, help them understand the forensic evidence collection process and criminal justice system, and execute on their safety.
As an advocate, a woman, and a survivor, I cannot begin to tell you how much your support means. With the utmost gratitude, thank you for contributing to our cause.
