Sexual assault is any act that breaks a person's trust, or violates their sense of safety, and is sexual in nature.
This includes forced, coerced, or manipulated sexual activity, sexual contact with someone who is unable to consent, as well as human trafficking.
Sexual assault is not uncommon. Even though there are many people with this shared experience, lack of visibility and understanding can lead to feelings of isolation.
Sexual assault can happen to anyone, and impacts people of all genders, ages, races, sexual orientations, and cultural backgrounds.
An Advocate trained in working with sexual assault survivors will help you navigate your recovery process. We are also available to answer questions for and offer support to family and friends.
Assistance with health services
If you have been assaulted, you may require medical care. We can be a link to health services that are mindful of your individual needs.
