I received services from the Sexual Assault Center that were life-saving! I had suffered from depression and anxiety for most of my life due to sexual, physical, and emotional abuse. The staff at SAC accepted me, and skillfully guided me through a healing journey that enabled me to function at home and at work. I recently obtained a Bachelor's Degree and am so thankful to SAC for helping me succeed.

I was a victim of childhood sexual abuse. This experience haunted me and left me depressed, guilt-ridden, and emotionally unstable. I had attempted to recover on my own with self-help books and traditional counseling. These efforts were not effective. In desperation, I contacted the Rape & Sexual Abuse Center. At the center, I finally found what I needed. I received individual and group therapy over the next three years. This enabled me to confront my abuser and deal with the emotional baggage I had carried for years. I am proud to say that I am no longer a victim, but a healthy, happy survivor. I owe it all to the guidance & support I received at the center.
