YWCA Victim Advocacy Program
YWCA Victim Advocacy Program (VAP) is the only community-based non-shelter program in Knox County, the only program with advocates in both criminal and civil courts, and the only program with bilingual/bicultural advocates (Spanish/English). The YWCA is an onsite partner at the Knoxville Family Justice Center. YWCA advocates are stationed at the Family Justice Center, in court, and out in the community. All VAP services are offered at no charge and are completely confidential to ensure client safety. Services are available in English and Spanish.
