Sexual Assault

Sexual assault can happen to anyone, regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, income level, race, religion or physical ability. It can happen to men and women. It can happen between people of the same sex. It can happen to children and teens. You are not alone. We are here to help.

It is your right:

  • To walk alone, even at night
  • To dress however you choose
  • To say no to sex, even if you have had sex with the person before
  • To consume alcohol
  • To say no to unwanted touching
  • To have your choices respected

 

Sexual assault is not your fault!

We have many services to help you, including:

  • Counseling
  • Crisis intervention
  • Accompaniment to medical procedures, including SART exams*
  • Accompaniment to interviews with law enforcement and court proceedings*
  • Advocacy for you and your rights

 

*We are here to help you whether or not you choose to report the assault. That is your choice, and we respect your choices.

I don’t know where I’d be without the help of Community Solutions. It provides me with stability. It means having support and people who believe in me. [Today] I am going to school. I am respecting myself. I am appreciating myself more.

I no longer feel alone. I know I have an entire community that is ready to support me if I need it in the future.

There's a lot of good things happening here. And I'm living proof of that. Change is possible.

My grandson and my entire family would not have made it through this trying time without you. We were so lost and you helped us through.
