Join us Tomorrow Night to Learn More about How to Support Survivors!

We hope you will join us tomorrow night from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm for the next session of our Concerned Person’s Support Group, where we will be discussing how to support survivors of sexual violence!

The Concerned Person’s Support Group was created for anyone who knows someone close to them that was sexually assaulted. The goals of this group are to learn how to support the primary survivor and learn ways to take care of yourself as the secondary survivor.

We hope to see you there! Intakes will be provided for any new group members in attendance.



Get to know people before giving them a lot of information about you or trusting them. #SVRiskReductionTipTuesday

Remember: Sexual violence or abuse is never your fault. No one has control over an abuser’s choice to assault. However, there are things we can do to reduce our risk.
