Introducing Savannah Tipton, Beacon of Hope’s newest victim advocate! Savannah is a recent grad from Ball State University with degrees in Criminal Justice and Criminology. She has a passion for helping others and loves the inclusive environment at Beacon of Hope.
As a victim advocate, she works closely with victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. Savannah loves being able to work one on one with victims while seeing positive changes that result from the work we do here. In addition to victim advocacy, Savannah also manages our social media accounts!
Her favorite resource that Beacon of Hope offers is safety planning for our victims. Safety planning is used to keep a victim safe while they may be living in or leaving a violent situation. Having a safety plan in place and being well prepared for the worst-case scenario can make all the difference to a client.
Savannah loves criminal justice and found her niche in victim advocacy. A fun fact about Savannah is that she loves hiking and hammocks! She’s also a great cook.
Thanks for all you do, Savannah!
