What is an advocate?

According to The National Center for Victims of Crime, victim advocates are professionals trained to support victims of crime. Advocates offer victims information, emotional support, and help to find resources and filling out paperwork. Sometimes, advocates go to court with victims. Advocates may also contact organizations, such as criminal justice or social service agencies, to get help or information for victims. Some advocate staff crisis hotlines, run support groups or provide in-person counseling. Victim advocates may also be called victim service providers, victim/witness coordinators, or victim/witness specialists.
