Friend to Friend currently responds to 100% of sexual assaults that come into First Health Moore Regional Hospital located in Pinehurst, North Carolina. First Health Moore Regional Hospital not only serves sexual assault victims from Moore County, but also surrounding counties, with a large military population that creates high demand for sexual assault advocates.

MAUREEN KRUGER Moore County District Attorney

Friend to Friend is one of the most vital social service programs in the Community. Maybe even more than a "service", Friend to Friend is actually a "place"—a safe haven for those who have been victims of sexual abuse and domestic violence. There is no facility in this community that more directly symbolizes our commitment to help those in need.

JOHN DEMPSEY President, Sandhills Community College

It is always my pleasure to share the relationship that Moore County Department of Social Services has with our community partners and this is especially true concerning Friend to Friend. Friend to Friend is our primary partner in assisting victims of domestic violence as they provide housing , counseling and legal resources to those find themselves in this unfortunate circumstance. Friend to Friend serves a key role in our County 's Sex Abuse Task Force. Their support is instrumental in meeting the needs of the victims. Knowing that we have an able and committed partner enhances our success in meeting the needs of Moore County Citizens.
