While it may be difficult to trust anyone, RESTORE Counselors will support you in your healing process.
RESTORE currently works with the New York State Department of Corrections to ensure that incarcerated victims of sexual violence have access to the care they need in order to heal.
In 2003, Congress unanimously passed the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) to respond to the epidemic of sexual assault in our state prisons, local jails, federal and juvenile facilities and transitional housing. It is estimated that up to ten percent of people that are incarcerated are sexually assaulted while under state, local or federal custody. Survivors of sexual violence are over-represented in our prison systems and RESTORE seeks to provide confidential, effective and non-judgmental services to these clients through legal mail, legal calls and in person visits.
At any time a survivor in participating NYS prisons can dial #77 from any facility phone and be directly connected to a RESTORE counselor.
