Aurora Health Care’s Healing and Advocacy Services Gets Department of Justice Grant
Aurora Health Care recently received a $740,000 grant from the Department of Justice that that will allow it to strengthen its 24-hour crisis hotline and expand advocacy and counseling services.
It will allow people who come to the emergency room to not only get the help they need right away, but have continued support throughout their healing journey.
Aurora prides itself on being the only health system in Wisconsin dedicated to helping survivors of sexual assault from the point of crisis and throughout their recovery.
There are also services available for those living with domestic violence.
Each year, an estimated 2,500 men, women and children who are survivors of assault and their loved ones receive care from Aurora programs and services.
Last year, more than 3,500 Aurora caregivers participated in Denim Day, raising more than $20,000 dollars.
They are on track to meeting this year's goal.
Sharain Horn, Director of Aurora Health Care's Healing and Advocacy Services in Milwaukee, was a live guest on the CBS 58 News at 4.
Her interview is attached to this story.
