Rape Recovery Team
You can reach a Rape Recovery Team Advocate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, by calling the Rape Crisis Hotline: 904-721-7273.
Our mission is to support and empower survivors of sexual violence by advocating for their rights, dignity and respect; provide community education; and facilitate professional collaboration.
The Rape Recovery Team (RRT) serves ALL victims of sexual violence – women and men – all ages, classes and creed, regardless of abilities, sexual orientation or gender identity. Our services are open and our work together is confidential.
Sexual Violence changes a victim's view of the world. Whether or not the victim suffers any physical injuries, the emotional impact of the violence can be severe. Recovery can seem like an endless journey. Emotions such as fear, shame and confusion continue long after the violence ends. While experiencing these emotions, victims must deal with the police, medical staff, lawyers, insurance companies and family members. Throughout all of this they struggle to hold their lives together.
The RRT works to streamline and simplify this process so that victims and their families feel that recovery is possible. Our advocates respond quickly and compassionately to survivors of sexual violence whether or not they have chosen to report the violence to the police. On call 24-hours a day, 7 days a week, trained advocates provide the following services to ALL victims age 12 and up:
For those choosing to report, the RRT works collaboratively with the Sexual Assault Response Center, the State Attorney’s Office and local Sheriff's Offices and Police Departments throughout Duval, Baker and Nassau Counties to ensure that victims receive the most comprehensive services available. For those choosing NOT to report, we have an extensive network of community partners who assist us in assuring a network of care for our clients, so no individual faces this alone.
