As an ISAH volunteer advocate...

You have the opportunity to give those affected by sexual violence a safe place to find their voice. By answering our 24-7 crisis line, you provide interpersonal support to survivors and their loved ones.  An advocate may be the first person to listen to a survivor of sexual abuse, and to offer them the support they need to help them in their healing process.
