SOS stresses victim confidentiallity during domestic violence awareness month Featured

By Xander Baldwin October 16, 2020 62

October is domestic violence awareness month and SOS advocates want the community to be aware that their services are always available.

SOS services range from the shelter, which can allow for victims and their children to be relocated for up to 30 days, to advocacy, where advocates help victims with emotional support and applying for protection orders.

SOS Victim Advocate Tiffany Lazar joined KVOE's morning show to discuss community outreach. Lazar says that living in such a small community can raise concerns about victim anonymity.

Lazar says these concerns are taken seriously and confidentiality and anonymity are the highest priority when dealing with victims.

SOS is designed to help a range of different victims. Specifically, people who are victims of domestic violence, sexual abuse, stalking, or human trafficking.

To get help or find out more about SOS services visit or call 800-825-1295.
