Program/Service Notes:

Rape Crisis Services offers help to survivors
of sexual violence and their significant others through:

24-hour Hotline: The crisis hotline is staffed by trained crisis counselors 24-hours
a day, seven days a week and can be reached at 217-355-5203. Callers outside of
central Illinois may reach the crisis center closet to them by dialing 800-656-HOPE.

Counseling: Rape Crisis Services offers individual, family, and group counseling on
a short-term basis. Counseling services are client-centered, and ultimately the
client determines the direction of counseling.

Medical Advocacy: Trained advocates respond to area medical facilities to provide
emotional support and information, and to ensure that needed medical assistance is
obtained in the immediate aftermath of a sexual assault.

Legal Advocacy: Legal advocates are available to accompany and support survivors
throughout the entire legal process from the initial police report to the trial.
Legal advocates provide information on legal rights and procedures and advocate on
the victim's behalf with criminal justice personnel.

Community Education: RCS offers workshops on sexual violence for schools and
community groups on topics including sexual assault and sexual harassment. RCS can
tailor presentations to meet the specific needs of an audience.

Professional Training: RCS conducts training for service providers who work with
survivors of sexual assault, including police officers, school counselors, and
health care professionals.

Information and Referral: RCS is able to provide extensive information on sexual
violence, from statistics to coping mechanisms. Additionally, RCS maintains contact
with numerous resources in order to best link individuals with services to meet
their needs.

All services are free of charge and completely confidential.
