The safety and well-being of you and your family is important to us!

The Advocacy Resource Center (ARC) is here to assist all victims of crime whether or not the crime has been reported to a law enforcement agency.

• Do you need immediate safety from domestic violence, dating violence, or sexual assault? 
• Have you been sexually assaulted and are unsure what to do? 
• Has your child been experiencing verbal, cyber, or physical bullying?
• Is your partner accusing you of cheating, reading your text messages, or controlling where you go and who your with?
• Are you concerned that you, or an elder in your community, have been neglected, abused, or financially exploited and don't know what to do? 
• Have you missed work due to having to tend to your own or your child's victimization and may benefit from employment advocacy?
• Are you seeking safe housing opportunities and don't know where to start?
• Do you need assistance with transportation to and from community support agencies?
• Would you like to know more about traditional medicine services that the Tribe has to offer?

The ARC provides confidential advocacy, shelter, and educational services to both tribal and non-tribal individuals and families, women, men, children, teens, young adults, elders, and the LGBTQ/Two-Spirited.

Your safety and well-being matters to us and we want you to know that you do not have to live in fear.
