From staff reports
The Ohio University Women’s Center will host an open house for the new Survivor Advocacy Program from 2 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 13 in the McKee House.
The Survivor Advocacy Program provides confidential support services, including counseling and transportation to and from the hospital, for victims and survivors of sexual assault, domestic/dating violence and stalking.
The open house is an opportunity for students, faculty and staff to become acquainted with the program's location, services and staff. Speakers will discuss how the program came to be, what it offers, and what its plans for the future are, as well as answer any questions.
"We are excited to showcase the Survivor Advocacy Program to the campus community," said Lindsey Daniels, the program's coordinator. "The mission of the Ohio University Survivor Advocacy Program (OUSAP) is to create a safe campus where victims and survivors are thoroughly respected and supported. We work to empower the campus community to deal with these issues through confidential advocacy, services, education and resources."
