What We Do
It is our mission to support, empower and advocate for women and all trans survivors of sexual assault and childhood sexual abuse. Regardless of when you were assaulted, we are here to support you in your healing journey. We serve as a liaison between individuals affected by sexual violence, the justice and medical systems and community services.
For information about our services or to access any of our services, contact the Crisis & Information Line during regular business hours 250-383-3232 .
A Continuum of Care
Our goal is to provide survivors with immediate access to non-judgmental, emotional/psychosocial support and a continuum of care as they navigate the personal impacts of trauma experienced due to sexualized violence, whether recent sexual assault or childhood sexual abuse.
This continuum of care means that clients receive services as needed and progress to other levels of care, whether within our Centre or through referrals when appropriate. For example, a client may first be emotionally supported during a forensic exam at the hospital by a SART worker, then assisted through the criminal justice process by a Victim Service worker, and afterward begin longer term therapy with a trauma counsellor.
