Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM)

Did you know that over 53% of women and over 29% of men reported experiencing contact sexual violence? (NSVRC)

Every Sexual Assault Awareness Month, we bring awareness to the critical mission of our agency in providing essential services for survivors of sexual assault. This month holds particular significance as we come together to raise awareness, promote education, and support survivors. Sexual Assault Awareness Month serves as a crucial time to highlight the importance of prevention, advocacy, and healing. Together, we can make a difference and create a safer, more supportive community for all.
