Are you a Provider/Advocate Making a Referral?

ADV is continuously looking to work in partnership with community advocates and providers to connect clients in need to our services. We are also here as a resource for both you and your clients by providing additional education about intimate partner violence, our services, and community resources. To ensure clients receive our quick attention, ADV has developed a streamlined referral process for clients and those supporting them through the following options:

If the client is amenable, providers and advocates are able to contact the ADV 24/7 hotline and speak to one of our counselors with the client or collect information on the client’s behalf. Alternatively, advocates and providers can submit demographic and basic information about the client through a HIPAA-compliant form to help us work collaboratively towards client goals. If clients are amenable, ADV staff will contact them (or the referring advocate) within 24 hours.
