How RDAP can help
If you have been affected by domestic abuse and/or sexual assault, RDAP can help you. RDAP's free and confidential services include:
• Shelter is available to all victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. Our emergency shelter is a multi-bedroom home in a confidential location in North Platte. Length of stay is dependent upon the circumstances of each individual. While at our shelter, clients receive life skills training, general finance education, and self-esteem boosting group sessions.
• Emergency transportation is available 24 hours a day. We also offer transportation to appointments, school, work, and meetings for clients staying in shelter. Out-of-area transportation via bus is available (while funding is present) for individuals relocating due to domestic violence or sexual assault.
• RDAP can help victims seek legal protection, including assistance filling out and filing protection and harassment orders. We also offer referrals to local attorneys, and are available to accompany victims to any court proceedings.
• Upon request, staff and volunteers are available to personally support sexual assault and/or domestic violence victims who are undergoing medical examination and treatment. Advocates can also accompany victims to doctor's visits and or other medical appointments. We may also be able to help with medications as needed.
• RDAP will provide information on other community agencies that may be of service to the victim. We work closely with many programs and agencies, and can provide information and make referrals to organizations that can offer help and support to the client.
• RDAP provides weekly support groups for adults and children, addressing both domestic violence and sexual assault. (Call for time and location.) Smaller one-on-one appointments can be arranged, if necessary. Group meetings are also held once a week for residents of our shelter.
RDAP's services are available in the counties of Lincoln, Logan, Hooker, Thomas, Cherry and McPherson — including the communities of North Platte, Wallace, Wellfleet, Hershey, Maxwell, Brady, Sutherland, Thedford, Stapleton, Tryon, Valentine and Mullen.
