The Union County Rape Crisis Center (UCRCC) operates a twenty-four (24) hour sexual assault crisis response and informational hotline. Via the 24 hour hotline, specially trained Confidential Sexual Violence Advocates (CSVAs) provide emotional support, crisis counseling, in-person accompaniment through medical proceedings (i.e. sexual assault forensic examinations) as well as law enforcement interviews (i.e. filing a police report or making a statement with the police, legal meetings, and/or court proceedings, including but not limited to civil protective/restraining order hearings), advocacy, and information. Multi-agency service referrals are also available for survivors and family members seeking clinical, medical, legal and/or financial information, as well as other community resources.
All services are provided in a manner that preserves victim privacy and safeguards the victim's right to confidentiality pursuant to (N.J.S.A. 2A:84A-22.15).
