Your NEAS advocate is not a court advocate, but will be with you throughout the case, working cooperatively with law enforcement advocates and court advocates.
No in-house services are provided. All services are provided either in court, at other organizations, by telephone, attorney's offices, hospitals or law enforcement agencies.
All services are provided free of charge.
We believe in the right of all persons to live without fear, abuse, oppression and violence. We oppose all forms of dominance over others.
We should be accountable to our communities, to victims of abuse from diverse groups and to their children. We believe services should always be accessible to and responsive to victims of abuse from diverse groups, regardless of age, ethnicity, sexual preference, or differences in physical ability.
Since the struggle of victims of abuse is related to the struggle for empowerment, we are committed to maintaining a supportive, non-competitive atmosphere in all aspects of our services, so that open communication, respect, and cooperation will be encouraged among all organizations.
We believe batterers should be held accountable for their actions. We encourage the participation of all persons or groups who are committed to the struggle to end violence.
