Victim Services helps victims of all crimes from domestic abuse to sexual assault. Neil Dennison is the prevention specialist at Victim Services.
He says it can be hard for victims to come forward and report abuse.
“We always encourage trusted adults because they know them and grown up with them but sometimes they're not ready to tell a certain adult or they just want to tell someone. Victim services has a 24-7 crisis line.”
Although it’s hard, the crisis line is here to offer support with trained sexual assault advocates to assist victims in making a police report and offer any other support they may need.
