Talk to an Advocate

Emergency Response

Emergency Response is available to individuals who were sexually assaulted within the past 5 days.

To speak with the emergency on-call victim advocate, please call the CARE answering service at (866) 515-0155.  An answering service representative will ask you for a name and phone number which will be communicated to the on-call advocate, who will call you back immediately.

  • You may have someone you trust call the answering service for you if you feel uncomfortable calling yourself.

  • You may provide the call service representative with any name you are comfortable giving

  • The answering service representative may ask for a brief summary of why you're calling in order to convey that to the advocate; you may choose to tell the dispatcher that you "wish to speak with the advocate about options regarding an assault".

The answering service representative will NOT disclose your information to anyone other than the CARE advocate.
