Virtual Office Hours

New!

Our Buffalo County Outreach program is now offering virtual office hours! These hours are a chance to meet one-on-one, virtually, with our Buffalo County Victim Advocate via Webex. Meetings will be private, utilizing the waiting room feature. There's no need to have your video on if you don't want to - we want to respect your privacy. Visit our Buffalo County page to learn more.

Secondary Victims

Who is a secondary victim?

Secondary victims can be the parents, friends, or children of the primary victim - those who are affected by the violence even if they are not the target. We understand that hearing about or witnessing violence or abuse can be traumatic, which is why we extend many of our services to secondary victims.

Are our services for you?

If you have been affected by interpersonal violence, then yes, many of our services are for you. We are here to provide emotional support as you support your loved one, to provide information about violence and abuse, and referrals to other resources.
