Sexual assault can happen to anyone

Every two minutes someone is raped.

Sexual assault can affect men, women, or children. Eighty percent of victims are under age 30; 44% are under age 18.

Two thirds of sexual assaults are committed by someone the victim knows, not a stranger.

43% of rapes happen between the hours of 6pm and midnight.

Did you know?

One in four women (25%) has experienced domestic violence in her lifetime.

About 85% of domestic violence victims are women, 15% are men.

Domestic violence affects people of all races, religions, income levels, and sexual orientations.

Nearly three out of four (74%) Americans personally know someone who is or has been a victim of domestic violence.

Forever Changed

In the United States, the loss of a loved one to murder happens to at least sixty families a day!

The grief that follows a murder is compounded by all kinds of intrusions and insensitivity. Accepting support from professionals specifically trained in bereavement and working with crime victims will offer more than support and comfort. They can help you navigate the criminal justice system, cope with the news media and learn how to face the day-to-day experience of being a co-victim of homicide.

We're here to help.

Break the cycle

Domestic violence is a pattern of behavior that runs in cycles.

An abusive episode will be followed by apologies, promises, making-up behaviors (the "honeymoon phase"), which usher in a period of calm.

Soon, though, the tension begins to build, until the next abusive episode occurs.

Over time, these cycles can become more frequent or more violent.
