Emerge! Center Against Domestic Abuse
Emerge! Center Against Domestic Abuse is the largest provider of comprehensive domestic abuse services and programs in Southern Arizona, and is committed to improving and expanding services to all members of our community who are experiencing domestic abuse in their lives regardless of age, income, ethnicity, gender, sex, sexual orientation, sexual expression, ability, religion, national origin, or immigration status. Emerge strives to support community members in creating, sustaining, and celebrating a life free from abuse. To that end, Emerge, in collaboration with Tucson City Court, delivers confidential, trauma informed services via court advocates. The court advocates serve survivors of domestic violence who intersect with the criminal justice system and support them in navigating the criminal justice system, offering information and understanding about survivor's rights and options, providing emotional support and advocacy, accompanying survivors to various court proceedings, and assisting with orders of protections and individualized safety plans. Additionally, court advocates explore the individualized and complex needs of survivors and link them to community resources such as housing, counseling, legal assistance, and so much more. The goal of this partnership with City Court is to support survivors in sharing their experiences, seeking justice and safety, and promoting offender accountability.
