  • Sexual assault can happen to anyone at anytime, and anywhere regardless of gender, age, race, class, sexual orientation, and ability/disability.

  • 1 in 3 women will be sexually assaulted in her lifetime.

  • 1 in 3 female and 1 in 6 male children will experience sexual violence before the age of 18.

  • Locally, 85%-90% of violent crimes against women are committed by someone of the same racial background as the survivor. Native American women are the only people more likely to be assaulted by someone of a different race.

How to HELP:

If someone you know is sexually assaulted...

  • Let them know that you care & believe what they tell you.

  • Be willing to listen, without giving advice or telling them what to do.

  • Reassure them that they are not to blame and did nothing wrong.

  • Ask before touching the survivor. They may not want to be touched.

For further information call our Victim Advocate at (707) 954-8938 or 1(855) 945-4357.
All services are provided in a safe, non-judgmental, and confidential manner.
