When a child, teen, or adult experiences a personal violation of sexual harm, many thoughts and emotions run through one’s mind. The experience is complicated when the person who coerced or forced the encounter is known to or part of the victim’s family or social group.
Our Victim Advocates are safe to talk to and explore options. There is no judgment. Adults may choose to receive services without reporting to law enforcement.
