Stop The Abuse
Stand With Survivors
The Advocacy Center provides comprehensive crisis and support services for youth and adult victims of domestic and sexual violence in Tompkins County. Our free services include a 24/7 hotline, crisis intervention, legal, medical and social service advocacy, support groups, trauma informed therapy, legal services and a confidential domestic shelter. Our dual mission also includes prevention and education in schools, on college campuses, and throughout the community.
We rely on the support of individuals, groups, communities, and businesses to
further the reach of our work and mission. Here are ways that you can help.
