You are not alone

We’re listening. We believe.

WISE advocates are here to listen and support you. We can answer your questions, help you find resources, navigate systems, and support you as you think through what you want next for your life.

Our team of advocates are compassionate and knowledgeable about the processes at hospitals, within the criminal legal system, and with other community resources. We can help you find what you need to be safe. We can explain available safety measures such as restraining orders and considerations if you choose to report to law enforcement. We can walk with you as problem solvers, connecting you with resources such as immigration and civil legal support, housing options, victim’s compensation, emergency funds, and whatever you need to move forward.

Legal Services

Immigration and Family Law Support

WISE offers legal support for anyone experiencing gender-based violence because navigating complicated legal situations is one of the challenges survivors and their children face.


The Multidisciplinary Interview and Training Center (MITC)

MITC supports survivors and our community through innovative and survivor-centered practices that shift the response to gender-based violence within the criminal legal system and improve outcomes.


Here for you—even on campus.

WISE provides advocacy to students, staff and faculty survivors on the Dartmouth campus. We are completely confidential and survivor-centered.
