Trained volunteers respond to area hospital emergency rooms to provide advocacy and support to individuals who have experienced sexual and domestic violence.
The Crisis Center of Central NH is committed to serving all survivors of domestic and sexual violence who seek emergency medical services. We partner will all of the hospitals in Merrimack County (Concord Hospital, Franklin Hospital and New London Hospital) to provide advocacy services 24 hours a day.
Immediately following an assault, you may be facing many medical, legal and emotional questions. An Advocate from CCCNH can:
- Provide you with some basic information and support to help you make the most informed choices for your situation
- Advocate on your behalf with hospital staff and law enforcement
- Provide support for your friends and family members and help them understand how to best support you
- Continue to provide ongoing support through court advocacy, support groups or helping you get connected to other important services
All of our advocates are trained to understand the emergency room experience and can provide as little or as much service as you need or desire.Register to Volunteer
