Specialists are available 24 hours a day to assist clients by phone or respond to the scene of a crime. To contact a specialist anytime day or night, call (407) 823-1200 or TEXT (407)823-6868. We provide crisis counseling, emotional support, and safety planning in the aftermath of victimization.
Information and Referral
To empower clients to make informed decisions, specialists help clients explore their rights and options and provide information about the civil, university, and criminal justice systems. We provide referrals to on and off-campus resources as needed.
Practical Assistance & Advocacy
When appropriate, specialists can act as liaisons to professors, family members, friends, employers, landlords, creditors, and other service providers. Specialists assist with reporting to the Police and Title IX, filing injunctions for protection, providing transportation to court appearances and other required appointments, and offering additional practical assistance related to the victimization.
