Protection From Sexual Violence and Intimidation
NPLS generally provides assistance with Protection from Sexual Violence and Intimidation Hearings and works with local domestic violence agencies to coordinate services for victims and their families. Many local domestic violence agencies offer services such as temporary shelter/emergency housing and counseling.
The Protection From Sexual Violence and Intimidation (PSVI) Act applies to adults and minors who are victims of sexual violence, harassment, stalking, and intimidation when the abuser is not a member of their family or household.
