HOW DOES A BETTER WAY
SUICIDE & CRISIS LIFELINE
Rape Crisis Center
A Better Way’s rape crisis center is open 24/7 to victims of rape or sexual assault. We provide professional, confidential emotional support and legal advocacy. We are here to listen.
A Better Way is a participating member of the Delaware County Sexual Assault Response Team. Our advocates respond to cases of sexual assault at the hospital and provide support to victims throughout the entire process, including the forensic medical exam and follow-up.
A Better Way advocates are ready to take your call and provide you with immediate, confidential support. We will listen, offer encouragement, and we will believe you. You may call as often as you like.
Support Group: Our Sexual Assault Support Group meets every Monday night from 7pm – 8pm, except on holidays. The group is facilitated by a victim advocate and a sexual assault counselor. A children’s group is provided during support group hours.
Individual Support: Professional, licensed counselors are available on-site to provide compassionate trauma-informed care; emotional and behavioral services include assessment, individual counseling, and referral to higher levels of integrated care as needed.
Our advocates provide essential sexual assault resources to victims, including accompaniment to court, assistance with protective orders, legal rights education, and overall guidance throughout the legal process.
