Operation Care: April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month
Please join our staff, volunteers, and Board of Directors as we endeavor to put a stop to sexual violence by increasing awareness about the effects it has on victims, their families, and society.
Check out all of the events we have planned this month, and take a moment to show your support by getting involved, taking action, and speaking out against sexual assault.
Local restaurants are speaking out against violence on Friday nights in April. Enjoy a magnificent meal and a night on the town at four locally owned and operated restaurants, while a portion of the proceeds will be used to help local victims.
Every Crime has a Victim and Every Victim Deserves Help
If you have been a victim of a crime, assistance may be available for you. The Victim Services program may be able to help you immediately with emergency lodging, food, clothing, safety repairs, counseling expenses, legal help and other types of assistance. READ MORE
