SEXUAL ASSAULT CRISIS CENTER OF EASTERN CONNECTICUT INC
June 30, 2011

Three years ago I went through a two month training process, meeting weekly with the staff at the SACCEC. We met people from other areas that relate to the industry- hospital staff, police officers, SANE nurses, Prison Wardens, etc. Based on this training, I was able to get a complete understanding of the importance of the SACCEC's effect on the community, the support it offers, and the team that I would be able to become a part of.

Every month I volunteer for multiple shifts, where I answer calls from individuals who have been sexually assaulted recently, and in the past. I also answer questions from family members of victims, police officers, and others who need help. Lastly, with recent victims, as a crisis counselor I go out to five local hospitals when we get calls from victims, and help them walk through the Sexual Assault kit, police questioning, and assists in the beginning of the healing process.

The SACCEC encourages healthy relationships in our local community. They reach out and perform programs within local school systems and communities to raise awareness.
