Working Together for Survivors
The Center is home to two key programs that help with the health and advocacy of survivors: The STOP Violence Program (SVP) and the Legal Advocacy Project for Survivors (LAPS). While SVP's main focus is mental health and connective services, LAPS focuses on the legal system and seeking justice for survivors. Our collaborative work reinforces the Center's holistic model of care—founded upon the belief that our liberation requires tending to the whole person.
The Stop Violence Program
The STOP Violence Program (SVP) provides trauma-informed LGBTQ+-specific services for survivors/victims of intimate partner abuse and domestic violence as well as for those at risk. Our services include: advocacy, a program designed for court-referred individuals, crisis intervention and emergency assistance, case management, individual and group counseling, and more.
The Legal Advocacy Project for Survivors
The Legal Advocacy Project for Survivors (LAPS) provides LGBTQ+-specific, trauma-informed, client-centered direct legal services and advocacy for LGBTQ+ victims of crimes including but not limited to: domestic/intimate partner/dating violence, sexual assault, stalking, and trafficking.
We Work Together to Help With:
Stalking is a pattern of behavior directed at a specific person that would cause a reasonable person to feel fear for their safety, the safety of others, or cause substantial emotional distress. SVP can help with mental health resources, while LAPS can provide legal assistance.
