This mission will be achieved through education, collaboration, and advocacy, with crisis and supportive services to victims and survivors. The Center offers safe shelter, transitional housing, crisis intervention, supportive counseling, SANE (sexual assault nurse examiner), sexual assault therapy, legal advocacy, Wardrobe for Work, support groups, community outreach, and healthy relationships programs – including Girls on the Run.
