Victim Assistance Coordinator
For the sake of the victims and for the integrity of the Church’s witness, it is critical that the Archdiocese knows about and responds appropriately to sexual abuse, and the Church is committed to responding with compassion and care to victims/survivors of sexual abuse by clergy or other Church employees. Martine Siegel serves as the Victim Assistance Coordinator for the Archdiocese of Louisville. In this capacity, she offers those who report having been sexually abused care and outreach, including counseling services if needed, referrals to other community resources, and ongoing communication about any investigation that may be underway.
