Sexual assault services are available to both men and women, age 13 or older, who are past or present survivors of sexual assault.
Sexual Assault Nurse Examinations
Our Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) program provides round-the-clock response to victims of a recent sexual assault who are age 13 and over. Utilizing a multidisciplinary approach, the SANE program addresses the medical and emotional needs of assault victims who have experienced sexual assault within the last 120 hours.
Trained registered nurses administer timely, sensitive, and comprehensive medical examinations, while specially trained sexual assault advocates are available for emotional support. A sexual assault legal advocate is also available to provide follow up legal advocacy and information that will allow survivors to make an informed decision about engaging in the legal process.
Sexual Assault Case Management
Our highly trained case management team works individually with survivors to meet their self-identified goals. Goals may include: meeting basic needs, planning for safety, increasing their understanding the impact of sexual assault, or creating a healthy network of support.
Advocates and therapists work together to provide comprehensive interventions that are designed to reduce trauma symptoms and empower the individual.
Sexual Assault Legal Advocacy
Our legal advocacy services assist survivors of sexual assault and stalking as they go through the legal system. Advocates can help you understand what to expect in court, assist with Personal Protection Orders (PPO’s), provide courtroom support, and provide general information about the legal system and their rights as a survivor.
Trauma-informed therapy services are available to survivors of sexual assault. Master’s-level clinicians work with survivors to establish self-identified therapeutic goals to address the impact of domestic violence, sexual assault, and surviving childhood abuse.
All therapy services are provided free of charge. Please call the crisis line for more information.
