Today, our Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner Program was honored to receive the “Georgia Crime Victim Service Collaborative and Innovative Project Award” for 2022.

The award was presented by the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council at their Crime Victims’ Rights Week Ceremony hosted in Fannin County.

Kristy Carter, Victim Assistance Division Director with CJCC, presented the award:

“As the discipline of crime victim services has grown over the years, so has the number of remarkable individuals and organizations who significantly contribute to its success. Today, the field includes countless people and programs that have, through vision, action, dedication, and leadership, improved the lives of victims in the aftermath of crime.

“This award recognizes collaborations and innovations that have helped to expand the reach of victims’ rights and services.

“I am pleased to announce that this year’s award is presented to North Georgia Mountain Crisis Network’s Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner Program.

“Victims of s*xual assault have needs beyond the criminal justice system. The way service providers respond to victims following the report of s*xual assault can impact their long-term physical and mental health and their perception of justice. These needs require services from a multidisciplinary team that can include medical providers, victim advocates, and mental health professionals.

“The North Georgia Mountain Crisis Network opened its doors to the community in 1986 to provide safe shelter and support services for all survivors of domestic violence, their children, and survivors of s*xual assault; and to promote community awareness and education to help prevent and break the cycle of violence.

“The NGMCN team and board recognized the need to expand the services they offer to include a medical forensic examination for victims of s*xual assault. These services are performed by a s*xual assault nurse examiner, a SANE. SANEs are trained to help survivors by providing evidence-based treatment to performing assessments to collect forensic evidence that can be used in a criminal trial; these nurses play a critical role in supporting survivors at the beginning of their recovery process.

“For the past three years, the NGMCN team navigated the multiple challenges exacerbated by the pandemic and built a SANE program, which included onboarding a medical team. With the support from their board of directors, community partners, and volunteers, the SANE suite was built out so that victims can receive the medical forensic exam in their community and avoid traveling over the two hours outside of jurisdiction. This victim centered and trauma informed approach will benefit victims immensely and minimize traumatization in the aftermath of a s*xual assault.

“A survivor that received services from NGMCN conveyed the following:

▫️I have had the best care and support here. The night I was r***d I remember being in the back of a police car and felt like they thought I had done something wrong. At the hospital the nurse said an advocate would be arriving soon. I had no idea what an advocate was. The advocate came in and introduced herself. She was so compassionate and caring. She didn’t grill me with questions about what happened. She held my hand through the painful examination. She brought clothes and things to clean up with after the exam. After that night at my first appointment with NGMCN I met my Victim Advocate and Legal Advocate who helped me a lot. I found out through them that the lady that came out to see me at the hospital was actually the director. That was when I knew these people really care. Without their help, support, counseling, food boxes and just calls to make sure I was doing ok I don’t know where I would be now. Thank you NCMCN.▫️

Carter with the CJCC continued…

“Thank you for responding to the needs of your community. Thank you for expanding services even when the timing was incredibly challenging. Director O’Neal, please come forward to accept the award. Congratulations,” she concluded.

Sharing for our friends at North Georgia Community Action:

The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program administered by the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services will open to General Public households on December 1, 2021.

All households participating in the program must meet the income criteria; be responsible for paying the cost of energy for home heating directly to the supplier; and be U.S. citizens or aliens admitted to the U.S. for lawful, permanent residence.

To apply, applicants must send in their most recent heating bill, electric bill, proof of household income, proof of valid Social Security number, proof of citizenship with a valid picture I.D. and/or alien status.

All Community Service Centers are closed to the public because of COVID-19. To apply for assistance, you must call the service center in your county to receive instructions on how to submit your documents for your application.

Assistance will be in the form of a one-time payment on behalf of the eligible household to help offset the cost of heating their homes. The checks are issued directly to the home energy supplier. Assistance is on a “first-come, first-served” basis, while the funds last.

Any low-income residents living in Fannin County should call North Georgia Community Action of Fannin County beginning December 1, 2021 at 8:30 AM. The number to call is (706) 632-2854.

If you are not able to get through on the phone line, please be patient and keep trying. Keep calling until you reach someone. Do not leave messages as they will not be returned.
