The Army Community Service Family Advocacy Victim Advocate Program (VAP) provides emergency and follow-up support to adult victims of domestic abuse. Domestic abuse includes physical, emotional and sexual abuse between individuals who are/were married, live(d) together, or share a child in common. Advocacy services are available to service members, current or former spouses, individuals who share or have shared a child or domicile with the service member as well as current or former intimate partners. Advocacy services are available 24/7. Advocates may be reached at (270) 412-5500 during duty hours (Monday - Friday 7:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.). After duty hours an advocate may be reached through the Victim Advocate Hotline: (931) 980-5787.
Victim Advocates also provide support to the parents of children involved in Problematic Sexual Behaviors Among Children & Youth (PSB-CY). ACS FAP serves as the reporting point of contact for PSB-CY cases and can walk parents through supporting their children through this process.
Advocacy services include crisis response, information on reporting options, safety planning, assistance with obtaining protective orders, and accompaniment to medical forensic exams as well as court proceedings. Whether you need to relocate for safety reasons or want to stay and work on your marriage, a Victim Advocate is available to help. Advocates also work closely with their civilian counter-parts and provide a “warm-hand-off” for victims who do not qualify for on-going advocacy services within the military community.
