The Rape Crisis Center offers four key program areas to serve those who have experienced sexual assault and to educate our community as we work together to prevent sexual assault:
Through a dedicated group of staff and volunteers, we provide emergency response and victim assistance through our 24-hour hotline and in-person response to victims at the hospital, supporting them through the difficult hours immediately following the assault and anytime they or a family member or friend have a question or need information.
Counseling and Support:
Whether assault or abuse happened a week ago, or decades ago, counseling assistance is available. Weekly support groups, as well as individual therapy sessions are available through the Signs of Hope Counseling Center, sponsored by the Nevada Womens’ Philanthropy, to help deal individuals work through the trauma and move forward in hope and healing.
Long-term advocacy in partnership with the District Attorney’s office keeps victims updated throughout the court process, helping clients navigate the complex and often confusing legal system. Services include accompanying clients in court proceedings and assisting with other needs as they go through what can be a very lengthy legal process to bring perpetrators to justice.
We work to prevent sexual assault through education and community outreach. Programs include the Child Assault Prevention Program for elementary aged children, Your SPACE for teens, and Party Smart for young adults. In addition, general community outreach and awareness through activities during Sexual Assault Awareness Month and other events throughout the year to raise awareness of sexual assault as an issue in our community, and brings together numerous organizations to reduce the number of people affected by sexual assault.
