Hospital Accompaniment (R-HART)

The Regional Hospital Accompaniment & Response Team, or R-HART, is an entirely volunteer-based collaborative of advocates who provide support to individuals in the emergency room who have just experienced sexual and intimate partner violence.

The R-HART team of volunteers are available 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, all year. This team is a collaborative of volunteers from the YWCA Richmond, Safe Harbor and Hanover Safe Place, and serves survivors of all races, sexes, religions, nationalities, gender identities, sexual orientations, and socioeconomic backgrounds. In addition to providing emotional support, R-HART volunteers connect survivors with community resources and follow-up services.

For more information about the R-HART program, contact Ellie Minasian, R-HART Coordinator.
