Advocacy

SARA Companions are available 24-hours a day to provide in-person crisis support and advocacy to survivors of sexual violence. Navigating the medical and legal systems during a crisis can feel overwhelming on your own. We can help be your guide throughout the process. SARA works with survivors and/or their families and friends regardless of whether or not there is police or legal involvement in the case.

Educational Workshops

Invite SARA to train your organization, staff, faith group, school, or any other group that is interested! The goals of SARA’s community education and training efforts are to increase public awareness about the impact of sexual violence, promote community involvement, foster a multi-disciplinary systems approach to survivors of sexual violence, and challenge prevailing attitudes and dispel the myths which perpetuate the problem of sexual violence.
