The United States Department of Justice defines sexual assault as follows: “Sexual assault is any type of sexual contact or behavior that occurs without the explicit consent of the recipient. Falling under the definition of sexual assault are sexual activities as forced sexual intercourse, forcible sodomy, child molestation, incest, fondling, and attempted rape.”

The Sexual Assault Services Coordinator and trained Sexual Assault Volunteer Advocates are on-call to provide 24-hour availability to victims during any sexual assault crisis and during sexual assault hospital/medical accompaniments, SANE exams, or any other needed service such as support at the police station or courthouse.
