EVE's Sexual Assault Program believes that survivors of sexual violence have the right to be treated with dignity and respect. Through advocacy and counseling services, our program seeks to promote safety, and access to information and community resources that can empower survivors and encourage self-determination.
What Does Advocacy Look Like?
Our advocates help provide emotional support, crisis intervention, and resources to help someone on their pathway to safety. Some of these resources include legal navigation, safety planning, medical advocacy, and court support.
What Does Counseling Look Like?
Our Sexual Assault Counselors assist with learning about trauma, identifying healthy coping mechanisms, and building self-esteem and trust. We use an empowerment-based, non-judgmental approach that keeps survivors' needs at the center.
What if I Am Experiencing Changes?
Emotional, behavioral, or physical changes are common after a sexual assault. Taking care of yourself emotionally, physically, and mentally is important. Try to find safe places and people to surround yourself with. Remember what happened to you is not your fault. You did not deserve to be assaulted.
