What Is An Accompaniment?
Our advocates are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to accompany survivors of sexual assault during all stages of the criminal investigative process, including: forensic examinations; law enforcement interviews; child advocacy center forensic interviews, also know as “RCC” interviews; and court accompaniments. (Please note; due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, many in-person accompaniments have been postponed; however, and advocate can still accompany you via ZOOM or telephone call if you wish. You have a right to a support person during every step of the way.)
Contending with the criminal justice system can often times be overwhelming. It is not uncommon for survivors to experience feelings of voicelessness and fear. Verity’s advocates are highly qualified and can help you navigate through your court proceedings. We can help you prepare for your court proceedings and will be with you throughout the hearing. An advocate can accompany you through various criminal justice experiences, including law enforcement procedures, interviews, and trials. Do not hesitate to call and get the support you deserve today.
Come listen, learn, and laugh with us at one of our upcoming events. We offer classes, workshops, seminars, and more.
We strongly believe that sexual assault community education is key to eliminating sexual violence from our lives.
Due to Covid-19, we are working remotely and in-office at all locations on a staggered schedule. Please be certain to call in advanced before making plans to visit our physical locations, either at the FJC or on Steele Lane. We are still operating within our normal business hours. Please keep this in mind when contacting us, as we may not be immediately available via our office numbers, but will get your call soon. Our crisis line is fully operational so if you have an emergency, please call our crisis line.
If you have an immediate crisis, please call our rape crisis intervention hotline at (707) 545-7273 or call 911 for emergency services.
For all other inquiries about Verity, including the services we provide, upcoming events, or volunteer opportunities, please call (707) 545-7270 or fill out the contact form on this page. We will reply within two business days.
