Our Sexual Assault Response Center is staffed by counselors, legal advocates and specially-trained Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners.
You can “Contact Us First” following an assault and we will serve as gatekeepers, allowing you the necessary time to make medical and legal decisions with the support of our team.
