SARA's 24 Hour Crisis Call Line, (775) 883-7654
The SARA team is made up of trained staff and volunteers that are willing and able to accompany any victim during the hospital exam. The SARA team goes out in teams of two, one to stay with the victim, and one to stay with the family/friends. The advocate that stays with the victim will provide comfort, support and answer questions. The other advocate will remain with the family/friends of the victim and provide them with the support they need.
The SARA team can provide accompaniment to the police station to file police reports.
The SARA team is able to provide court accompaniment to victims of sexual violence throughout the legal process. We will be available to offer emotional support for victims and their families throughout the court process. Our team members are not attorneys, but can often answer general questions about the legal process in sexual assault cases. We work very closely with the District Attorney Victim Advocate.
SARA provides referrals for one-on-one counseling to survivors of sexual violence.
SARA team members can provide assistance in applying for funds through the Victims of Crime Program (a service provided by the State of Nevada) and other funds from the county in which the offense accord.
