St. Louis Survivors Legal Support, Inc.
St. Louis Survivors Legal Support
We understand the challenges and fears that victims face, and we are here to provide comprehensive assistance tailored to your needs. Our range of services is designed to empower you through every step of your journey:
- Initial Advocacy: Navigating the legal system can be intimidating, especially when seeking an Order of Protection (OP). SLSLS is present at the St. Louis County OP Office daily to guide you through the process. Our experienced team helps you make informed decisions, file petitions, and can connect you with vital resources for needs such as housing, transportation, counseling, and safety planning.
- Complete Support System: You're never alone on this journey. SLSLS provides a comprehensive support system from the moment you file your petition to your court hearing. We know that this time can be dangerous, and are committed to ensuring your safety by being available to respond to calls and texts as issues arise.
- Legal Representation: Every victim deserves a voice, and having legal representation is critical to obtaining OPs that last longer and that can contain critical terms relating to child support and custody/visitation. We connect you with dedicated volunteer attorneys who will represent you in your OP case and provide advice throughout the process at no cost to you.
- Empowerment through Accountability: We assist victims in filing motions to hold abusers in criminal contempt when they violate OPs, ensuring that these orders have real impact.
To take the next steps towards empowerment and healing, reach out to us today. Whether you visit us in person or contact us through our dedicated helpline at 314-NOW-STOP (314-669-7867), our compassionate team is here to support you. Remember, you're not alone in this journey – we are volunteers committed to helping victims of abuse regain their lives. Your strength inspires us, and we look forward to being a part of your path to recovery.
