Our Services

24-Hour Helplines

Our phone, text, and online chat Helplines operate 24 hours a day, every day of the year. Staff and trained advocates are available on the other end of the line to provide support for survivors of sexual violence and their loved ones.

Support Groups

Support groups offer a space to talk with people who share similar experiences. Our groups give survivors the opportunity to learn from, and be in supportive community with each other.

Therapy

We offer free, short-term, trauma-informed therapy in English and Spanish. We can also help survivors and their loved ones find a therapist in our community who meets their needs.

Advocacy

We are here to help support survivors through their individual healing journey. This can include accompaniment to appointments, assistance with filing police reports and 50C protective orders, assistance meeting basic needs, and more.

Education + Outreach

We offer prevention programs in elementary through high schools as well as professional and community trainings aimed at empowering our community through education.
