What is Confidential Victim Advocate?

Working together

The ODU Confidential Victim Advocate is a professional trained to support victims of Interpersonal violence such as sexual assault, dating/domestic violence, and stalking and other forms of abuse. The Confidential Victim Advocate offers victims information, support, and help finding resources.

The Confidential Victim Advocate may also contact campus and community services, such as Student Outreach and Support (SOS), the YWCA, or other social service agencies, to get help or information for victims.

If You Are A Victim...

It may be difficult for you to reach out for help. However, you may find that the confidential victim advocate can offer you information, support, and access to helpful services you might not know about. Many victims/survivors are often relieved to know all of the options available to make sure they are safe and have the help they need to recover from the impact of the crime.
