How We Can Help

Your Confidentiality

Our client’s confidentiality is strictly protected through a law called Advocate Privilege. This means that our advocates and employees are not mandated reporters to Title IX, Carroll College, or any other agency unless the individual is under the age of 18 and the situation requires a report to Child Protective Services.

Our confidential services include:

  • 24/7 advocacy and crisis support including medical and forensic exams and law enforcement interviews

  • Information about options for reporting to law enforcement and campus security

  • Information and advocacy for Title IX report and investigation processes

  • Help accessing student accommodations, campus no-contact orders, and other supportive services at Carroll and in the community

  • Information and assistance in filing an Order of Protection through civil court

  • Safety planning, emergency financial assistance, immediate safe shelter, and therapeutic referrals

Services for Secondary Victims

If a friend or loved one of yours was assaulted or abused and you want to help, learn how you can safely assist survivors. You can also get additional information by getting in touch with our advocates.

What's a secondary victim?
A secondary victim is the friend or loved one of somebody who's experienced violence or abuse. You don't have to be the primary victim of assault, abuse, stalking, or another crime to feel anger, guilt, and pain. TFC is here to help all who are affected by domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking in our community.


Community Education

In addition to supporting victims with a variety of confidential services, The Friendship Center is also dedicated to promoting healthy relationships and preventing the interpersonal violence at the root of sexual assault and abuse. We are available to present for classes, groups, and events at Carroll College and throughout our community. Learn more about our education services and how to request a presentation.
