Our dedicated staff work tirelessly for our clients.  Each victim advocate at Pickens County Advocacy Center must complete training and be registered by the State of South Carolina Victims Service Provider Certification. 

This ensures that our victim advocates are well-trained on both a state and local level and maintain professional development providing services to our sexual violence survivors.
