VIC Radio is partnering with The Advocacy Center for the 36th Annual 50 Hour Marathon April 21st - April 23rd, 2023! 4 DJs will stay awake and stay on the air for 50 hours straight to raise money for The Advocacy Center!
The Advocacy Center is the only provider of Domestic and Sexual Violence services in Tompkins County, NY. While the agency has grown, expanded services, and adapted to the ever-changing needs of survivors and the community over the years, they remain committed to the core philosophy of providing compassionate, trauma-informed, survivor-focused services and education with roots in feminism and the grassroots battered women’s movement of the 1970s. Today the agency has expanded to provide not only domestic violence services but also services to youth and adult survivors of child sexual abuse, adult sexual assault, and rape. The Advocacy Center continues to work toward a community where all are free from violence in their homes, relationships, and life.
Your donation directly supports the work of the Advocacy Center and survivors in Tompkins County to increase their safety and heal from the abuse they have experienced. The Advocacy Center provides a variety of services for survivors including emergency shelter for victims of domestic violence and their children; meeting emergency safety needs such as lock changes, obtaining a cell phone, or support requesting an order of protection in court; providing emotional support and connection through support groups and therapy services; advocating during post sexual assault exams at Cayuga Medical Center; and prevention education for local Middle & High School Students, College Students, Professionals, and Community Members. Donations help the Advocacy Center provide all direct services to survivors free of charge!
We, the VIC Radio community, are asking for donations from anyone who is willing to help The Advocacy Center. Any donation will help make an impact. Please support this organization and VIC Radio. Thank you in advance for your contribution.
