Venus Collective announce Rape Victim Advocates as the recipient of proceeds of Venus 2010 ~Just Be: Soul Revival~

9 Oct

The Venus Collective are more than honored to have RVA as the recipient of proceeds from Venus 2010…

 

RVA is an Illinois not-for-profit organization made up of many individuals with two primary goals: to assure that survivors of sexual assault are treated with dignity and compassion; and to affect changes in the way the legal system, medical institutions and society as a whole respond to survivors.

 

RVA focuses on both social service and social change. Through our presence in Chicago area emergency rooms, we provide nonjudgmental emotional support to victims of sexual violence, enabling them to become survivors. By providing basic legal and medical information, and referrals to other service organizations, we help the survivor make informed decisions. We also offer survivors continued support through telephone follow-up and our staff of counselors and legal advocates. Through these services, we enable survivors to regain control over their lives as quickly as possible. Through our work with the Chicago Police Department, the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office and other area institutions, we strive to improve the treatment of survivors as a group in our society.  RVA offers three distinct program areas: Counseling (individual and group), Advocacy

(legal and medical) and Education & Training.
