Advocacy and Resource Center Isn't Just For Women

The Advocacy and Resource Center in Sheridan has been around for three decades helping victims of all violent crimes. While the center most typically deals with cases where the woman is the victim, they have been seeing more and more men reach out for assistance over the years as well. Victim Advocate Rhonda Weber says that can be attributed to law enforcement's involvement.

Weber says that even though they have been helping more men over the years, there is still that stigma that goes along with a male reaching out for help.

Weber said that they've assisted males for a number of different reasons, but that stalking is probably the most common crime for which the victim is a male.
