We also continue to offer virtual appointments. Please call 212-854-3500 to schedule a virtual appointment.

Sexual Violence Response (SVR) is a Remote Temporary Order of Protection (TOP) site in New York State. In partnership with the New York State Unified Court System, SVR can facilitate online Orders of Protection for students. Call 212-854-HELP/4357 to discuss your options with an advocate.

This helps to reduce the amount of time student survivors spend going to the courthouse to file temporary petitions. Students facing intimate partner, dating, domestic, family, or relationship violence qualify for this service.
