Victim Advocacy Program

A Marine Corps Victim Advocate provides information, guidance and support to victims of spousal/intimate partner domestic abuse and sexual assault, as well as support services to non-offending parents in child abuse incidents.

When might I need to speak with a Victim Advocate? Even if you are unsure of whether you are in a relationship that is characterized by domestic abuse, or if your friend or colleague is in such a relationship, you can speak with a Victim Advocate anonymously. Our Victim Advocates are trained to provide individuals with information, resources, emotional support and to discuss available options with service members, their spouses and/or intimate partners.

Marine & Family Programs, Bldg. 129 has a Victim Advocate who is available to speak with victims of domestic abuse 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
