YWCA Kalamazoo’s Victim Services Programs supports survivors of violence from their emergency-immediate needs to future safety plans. We have dedicated staff members to work individually with survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking to assist them with their healing process. Advocates meet with survivors to discuss current needs and to refer them to resources and services throughout the community. Additionally, advocates assist with safety planning, court appearance, filling protective orders etc. When it is safe to do so, we try to meet clients where they are.
