Victim Advocates provide information, guidance, and support to victims. They are specially trained to respond to incidents of domestic violence 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Victim Advocates provide emotional support; advise victims of their rights, explore resources and service in both civilian and military communities, and accompany and support victims through medical and legal proceedings.
Adult victims of domestic violence have two reporting options: Unrestricted and Restricted.
Unrestricted Reporting allows victims to pursue an official investigation of an incident.
Restricted Reporting allows adult victims to receive help without requiring notifications to law enforcement or command. There are some limits to restricted reporting which can be explained by the victim advocate.
If you or someone in your family has been abused, Transitional Compensation can help you start a new life. This program provides 12-36 months of financial compensation and military ID card benefits and privileges to families of service members separated for domestic violence. To find out more about this program and to see if you qualify for the Victim Advocate Program, contact Victim Advocacy.
