The Advocates of Lake County is the only agency in Lake County, Colorado, that offers confidentiality and is solely dedicated to victims’ services. We are not affiliated with the court system, law enforcement, or any other government departments. The Client Services Coordinator is bilingual, to serve Spanish-speaking people in Lake County.
