We Envision a World Without Sexual Violence. 


Who We Are

The Center for Sexual Assault Survivors is a local 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to creating a world that is free from sexual violence, intimate partner violence, and human trafficking.  All of our services are FREE & Confidential to all.

We provide FREE crisis services to victims of sexual assault (both children and adults), their family members, friends, dating partners, and anyone else seeking services, related to overcoming sexual violence.

The Center plays an active role in the reduction and elimination of sexual violence in our community by providing ongoing community education and awareness events as well as training and technical assistance to: law enforcement, healthcare providers, social workers, school personnel, and other allied professionals.

Our Volunteers

We cannot support our community without our volunteers. After their training, our volunteers support survivors on our 24/7 crisis hotline, and support us with community outreach. 

Through helping us plan special events, creating information materials, and creating our youth curriculums our volunteers are invaluable members on our team.
