Sexual Assault Survivor Resources

If you or someone you know is a survivor, PLEASE get help. It's never too late. If you are wondering if what happened to you was sexual assault, please speak to someone. I know it might seem scary to start this journey, but I guarantee you will come out a stronger and happier person in the end.


Sexual Assault Services for survivors
  • Counseling
  • self-defense
  • acupuncture &
  • Yoga.
Most resources are free for survivors or have a small fee.
