Places that Help: Florida

Advocates and Shelters

Advocates who work at local domestic violence or sexual assault programs can help victims who are in need of emotional support, help with making a plan to stay safe, accompaniment to court or to the police, and more. On these pages, you will find contact information for non-profit statewide and local programs where you can find advocates; some of the local programs also provide shelter for domestic violence victims.
