SOS support groups provide a safe and confidential setting for survivors to talk with others who have been through similar experiences. Support groups are open to non-offending adults (18+) who have experienced any type of sexual violence including rape, sexual assault, child sexual abuse, or other types. Participants can bring a friend or family member to support them if they find it beneficial.
Be a listener, counselor and advocate...help sexual violence survivors in their recovery. Volunteers provide crisis counseling and support for victim/survivor of sexual assault on our 24-hour crisis line on nights, weekends, and holidays.
Sexual violence is a Public Health issue that impacts everyone, directly or indirectly, and results in long term social and economic costs. Effective prevention efforts use different approaches to change communities, shift social norms, end oppression, and promote norms of equity, consent and safety for all.
Sexual Violence Prevention Committee
This committee is dedicated to being part of the solution to shift the culture and prevent the onset of sexual violence perpetration. Primary prevention requires that we make the connection between all forms of oppression (including racism, sexism, homophobia, ableism, adultism, ageism and others) and how these create a culture in which inequality thrives and violence is seen as normal.
