All of the DC Rape Crisis Center advocates are trained as sexual assault advocates under the law. Our advocates support survivors of sexual assault in the following ways:
Hospital: If a survivor is sexually assaulted, and would like to receive a medical forensic exam to collect evidence of the assault. DC Rape Center advocates can meet the survivor at MedStar Washington Hospital Center to provide support through the initial acute crisis, and the recovery process. Additionally, If the survivor is needing transportation to the hospital the advocate can provide that as well.
Community Response: DC Rape Crisis Center advocates can meet a survivor anywhere in the DC Community to include but not limited to reporting to the police, or responding to the scene of the crime, or even a survivor’s home.
If you would like to reach an advocate at the DC Rape Crisis Center or access a medical forensic exam you can reach us by calling the DC Victim Hotline at 844-443-5732
