Background Statement

The Advocates of Lake County (ALC) was founded in 1982 when a group of local residents decided to address the high rates of domestic violence and sexual assault in our community. These trailblazers began by setting up a crisis line and providing office hours in donated space at City Hall.

Forty years later, ALC remains dedicated to serving survivors of violent crime in Lake County. We offer crisis intervention and support through our 24-hour crisis hotline, emergency safe housing, rental assistance, legal advocacy, counseling and more.

ALC is the only community-based organization dedicated to survivors of violence in Lake County. Our services are free and confidential, giving our clients complete control of their journey to lasting peace and safety.
