Rape Crisis Service believes every person should be free from sexual assault and/or sexual harassment. To this end, the program assures personal support and advocacy for survivors and significant others of sexual assault and violence.
Staff members and trained volunteer counselors support victims in the areas of medical needs, psychological support, police intervention and legal prosecution.
Information provided through prevention education and professional training programs increases awareness and improves societal response to sexual violence in the community and creates a society less vulnerable to sexual violence.
