Created by: Itziarely Demeza
Resilience, Mujeres Latinas en Accion, A Long Walk Home, Howard Brown on Halsted , and the Chicago Rape Crisis Hotline are five nonprofit agencies that offer medical and legal advocacy, counseling for survivors of all ages, as well as prevention programming. These agencies offer low cost to free services that will not only help survivors cope with traumas, but will guide them towards a new beginning. Some of the services provided are medical and legal advocacy, emergency and transitional housing, individual, group and family counseling along with educational training information sessions that focus on preventing rape culture.

These organizations are supporting hundreds of people daily; volunteers and workers are empowering survivors to speak out about their experiences and reassuring them that they are not alone. Whether it is through counseling or information sessions about sexual assault and prevention, these agencies dedicate themselves to assisting survivors in the safest and most professional ways possible.
