Legislative Advocacy
We work to continually strengthen Illinois, Iowa and federal laws which provide justice for victims.

Community Partnerships
We coordinate efforts among social service providers, medical personnel, law enforcement and faith-based groups to ensure victims receive the holistic care they need.
