The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders reminds residents that support and guidance for victims of sexual violence is available through the Union County Rape Crisis Center, a 24/7 hotline that connects victims with trained, volunteer advocates.

The advocates provide guidance by phone and may also accompany victims for medical, legal and other services.

“Victims of sexual violence come from all walks of life, and the events of the past few weeks underscore the need for a supportive, non-judgmental source of reliable information and guidance that is available to everyone,” said Freeholder Chairman Sergio Granados. “Our volunteer advocates perform an invaluable service for residents who are facing a life crisis, and I encourage anyone needing assistance to call the Rape Crisis Center at 908-233-7273.
