$50,000 in 50 Days!
As you may have heard, on November 29th, 2016 (Giving Tuesday), the Victoria Sexual Assault Centre set out with the goal to raise $50,000 in 50 days to support programs and services for survivors of sexual assault and youth-led prevention education in our community.

As we look to the new year, $50,000 will provide a solid foundation to ensure that survivors of sexual assault and childhood sexual abuse continue to have access to services that provide support, safety, and skills to heal from the effects of trauma. VSAC’s free services for survivors* include:
- Crisis & Information Line – 250-383-3232
- 24hr Clinic & Sexual Assault Response Team
- Counselling – group and individual
- Victim Services – Justice Support
Your donations will also support our prevention education programs. Project Respect is our award-winning, youth-led program that supports youth to become leaders and take action to address the root causes of sexualized violence and create cultures of consent and respect. Our Trans Inclusion Program supports inclusive practices within our agency and the greater community.
