Community Advocacy

College Students

RESTORE College Advocates provide support and advocacy to students who have experienced sexual assault on or off-campus. They help students with options following an assault, whether it’s days, months, or years later, and act as advisors for reporting individuals who choose to go through the student conduct process on campus.

Our College Outreach and Education Specialist provides programming around bystander intervention, onboarding for new students, training for faculty/staff, and student conduct board members and student staff (RAs). They can also be available for tabling and outreach events.

Correctional Facilities

RESTORE Advocates currently work with the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision to ensure that incarcerated survivors of sexual violence have access to the care they need in order to heal.

At any time, a survivor in participating NYS prisons can dial 777 from any facility phone and be directly connected to a RESTORE Advocate.

Child Sex Abuse

When a child discloses that they have been abused, a number of professionals step in to help. RESTORE works with local Child Advocacy Centers on a Multidisciplinary Team that works together to respond to reports of child sexual abuse. This team includes Child Protective Services, law enforcement, district attorneys, counselors, and advocates.
