1 in 4 girls and 1 in 13 boys experience child sexual abuse.

Mission: To provide healing for children, adults and families affected by sexual assault and to end sexual violence through counseling, education and advocacy.

According to the CDC, about 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 13 boys experience child sexual abuse. The total lifetime economic burden of child sexual abuse in the United States in 2015 was estimated to be at least $9.3 billion.

Your gift to the Sexual Assault Center is a gift of hope and a gift of healing. Your help provides critical funding for therapy, advocacy, prevention and support throughout the community. Regardless of the size of the gift, you will help ensure that every person who comes to SAC receives the best possible care.
