"Sexual violence can occur to anyone, at any time. The victim, their family and friends are typically overwhelmed in the face of a great deal of trauma. Trained victim advocates take this to heart when they volunteer to be present for these survivors after a sexual crime occurs, with the goal of providing compassion, options, education and steps towards healing.
SARA (formerly Goodhue Wabasha Sexual Assault Services (GWSAS)) actively supports, educates, empowers and advocates on behalf of victims and others impacted by sexual violence as well as provides prevention, awareness and outreach programs for the communities of Goodhue and Wabasha counties. For more information please contact them at 651-388-9360 Ext. 13 or if in crisis please call 1-800-519-6690
