Sexual Assault Victim Services (SAVS)
SAVS is a certified rape crisis program in cooperation with the Women's Center in Brevard to provide free and confidential support and advocacy services to sexual assault victims and their loved ones.
SAVS is staffed with victim advocates who provide victims with emotional support and assistance in making informed decisions. SAVS advocates are specially trained to assist victims with options about reporting the crime and obtaining heath care after the assault, as well as assist with coordination of services, information and referrals. Victim advocates also provide criminal justice information, assistance with crime victim compensation, and referrals to appropriate community resources.
SAVS advocates are available 24 hours a day to provide crisis intervention and advocacy services. SAVS has a rape crisis center staffed with sexual assault nurse examiners and advocates readily available at any time. Advocates can provide support throughout the sexual assault forensic examination as well as accompany victims to interviews with law enforcement and courtroom appearances. To contact SAVS, call the Brevard County Rape Hotline at 321-784-HELP (4357).
