You Are Not Alone.

Every two minutes, someone in America is sexually assaulted. The Sexual Violence Center is trained to help victims and survivors move forward.

Why Is This Affecting Me Now?

There are so many different experiences, senses and emotional triggers that can trigger an awareness of past trauma. No matter what has brought up these emotions and memories for you, our advocates can support you as you work through this crisis in your life.

We offer short-term counseling and access to a network of service providers who believe in our mission for longer-term support.

Why Am I So Afraid?

Fear is a common response to sexual violence - even violence that happened in the past.

You are not alone as you deal with these feelings. Our advocates are ready to help you work with you as you cope. You can call our crisis line for 24-hour support at (612) 871-5111 or (952) 448-5425 to talk to an advocate, and to get more information about our in-person one-to-one counseling and support groups.

Will I Ever Heal?

There is no standard timetable for when you can expect to recover from the emotional journey of dealing with trauma. You may have many feelings confronting you including shock, grief and maybe even shame.

We have found that talking about sexual violence and the feelings it brings up can help people move toward healing and we are ready to support you through this crisis in your life. You can call our crisis line for 24-hour support at (612) 871-5111 or (952) 448-5425 to talk to an advocate, and to get more information about our in-person one-to-one counseling and support groups.

Is It Too Late to File a Report with the Police?

You may be able to make a report to law enforcement about your assault even years after it occurred, under special circumstances. Contact the city or precinct in which the assault occurred (not necessarily the city or precinct you live in now) to find out more.

Remember, even if law enforcement cannot take up your case, this does not mean that what happened to you is any less real or that you do not deserve support as you come to terms with it.

Our advocates are ready to support you as you work through the trauma. You can call our crisis line for 24-hour support at (612) 871-5111 or (952) 448-5425 to talk to an advocate, and to get more information about our in-person one-to-one counseling and support groups.
