Advocacy and Accompaniments

Anyone in San Mateo County who seeks medical care related to a sexual assault, reports an assault to law enforcement, or has to go to court is entitled to an advocate from Rape Trauma Services. Advocates are available to provide emotional support and answer questions. If a survivor decides to have a medical exam following a sexual assault, advocates can meet her or him at the hospital and stay throughout the procedure. Advocates will also meet with survivors at any law enforcement agency in San Mateo County.

If you need immediate support please call our 24-hour crisis line (650) 692- RAPE (7273), or for more information, call our office at (650) 652-0598 to speak to a staff member or leave a message in the general voicemail.
