Friends, Family, and Partners

Supportive family, friends, and partners are an enormous help during the healing process for individuals who have survived an assault.
It is common for those who care about crime victims to want to help in some way, although many are not sure exactly what to do.
The following handouts and webpages provide important information for all those who support a loved one.
