Get Help

The most important thing a victim of sexual assault or domestic violence can do is tell someone whether that be the police, a friend, a rape crisis center, a counselor, a family member or a staff member.  Do not isolate yourself, don’t feel guilty, don’t blame yourself and don’t just ignore it.  Sexual assault, whether by a stranger or by someone you know, is a violation of your body and your trust.  The organizations and departments listed below can provide or arrange for immediate support and response including assistance with personal safety concerns.
