Relationship Violence and Sexual Assault

Relationship violence is not limited to someone hitting you; violence occurs on many levels, including sexual, emotional and physical. It can consist of someone threatening you, intimidating you into unwanted activities, verbally abusing you, isolating you from your friends and interests, or taking away your ability to make your own choices.

Free and confidential services

Services are available regardless of when the assault or abuse took place and whether or not the victim reported it to the police.

If you have a sexual assault emergency, get to a safe place. It is very important to seek medical attention  as soon as possible for proper evaluation and treatment. Try to preserve all physical evidence; do not bathe, brush your teeth, douche, use the bathroom, eat, drink, or change your clothes. Remember- this is not your fault.
