An advocate is always available to provide assistance 24 hours a day in any setting where the survivor needs support.

INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING

 

Experienced counselors, specializing in issues of sexual violence are available to offer survivors and their significant others a chance to talk about and understand their feelings regarding their attack, enabling them to move forward in their lives with hope for the future instead of fear from the past.

Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® The International Men's March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault & Gender Violence is a project of Venture Humanity, Inc. a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit corporation.

Men literally walk one mile in women's high heeled shoes to protest sexualized violence, educate their communities and raise money for chronically underfunded rape crisis centers, domestic violence shelters and other sexualized violence prevention and recovery services.

For a specific Walk Event, contact that Local Walk Organizer directly.

Each Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® Day Event is individually and locally organized under a license from Frank Baird and Walk a Mile in Her Shoes®, a Venture Humanity, Inc. Project.
