Hello and welcome to RCASA’s Case Management Sundays! The purpose of this blog is to explore how community resources and current events impact victims of sexual violence. We will look at whether community cohesion or lack of cohesion impacts the victim and to what degree. We will also explore how high-profile cases and current events impact these victims. Each week we will look at questions such as, how are homeless victims affected? What resources are available to someone who doesn’t have stable living conditions or regular support? Does this impact how the police work with these victims? What about mental health resources? As a Case Manager and Court Advocate, it is my responsiblity to advocate and empower the victim as they move through the court process. It is critical that someone help connect the dots within the community as they move through the trauma they are experiencing. Each Sunday this blog will explore different layers of the process by which that connection happens.
See you next Sunday.
