Support Services:

Just Speak, Inc. offers several services to educate our communities on prevention and awareness of child sexual abuse/sexual assault and interpersonal violence among young people.

Office for Victims of Crime Sexual Assault/Advocate Counselor Training

Sexual Assault Advocate/Counselor Training (SAACT) teaches advocates about advocacy/counseling, the realities and impact of sexual assault, procedures to follow in common situations, techniques to support recovery, and compassion fatigue and self-care. The 2-day curriculum focuses on intervening with individuals in a crisis, and does not replace long-term and group counseling.

Advocate Accompaniment

Advocates ensure accompaniment at sexual assault forensic medical exams, during law enforcement interviews, and during any other criminal justice proceedings when the victim wants an advocate, and provides in-depth follow-up services to the person.

Facilitated Youth Groups

Topic-based peer sessions for ages 11-18 to give a supportive environment for discussions covering a variety of teen issues, awareness, and healthy coping.

Acute Crisis Advocacy/Counseling

Youth ages 9-18 trained to be advocates to give information and counseling support to survivors and significant others of survivors.
