Sexual Assault

Sexual assault can happen to anyone, regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, income level, race, religion or physical ability. It can happen to men and women. It can happen between people of the same sex. It can happen to children and teens. You are not alone. We are here to help.

It is your right:

  • To walk alone, even at night
  • To dress however you choose
  • To say no to sex, even if you have had sex with the person before
  • To consume alcohol
  • To say no to unwanted touching
  • To have your choices respected


Sexual assault is not your fault!

We have many services to help you, including:

  • Counseling
  • Crisis intervention
  • Accompaniment to medical procedures, including SART exams*
  • Accompaniment to interviews with law enforcement and court proceedings*
  • Advocacy for you and your rights


*We are here to help you whether or not you choose to report the assault. That is your choice, and we respect your choices.

At Community Solutions I met some wonderful women who helped me with my fears and helped me understand that I did not deserve to be abused by anyone.

Luz, age 50, Solutions to Violence

[Community Solutions] helped me with my problems and were there when I was having hard times. They have helped my family with a place to live and helped us pay some bills and buy some food when we needed it.

Serena, age 15, Child & Youth Behavioral Health

I cannot describe very well but all I know is that each day is getting better. Your program helps.

Jin, age 62, Adult Behavioral Health

Thanks to the program, I left the ugly house I was living in that had two small windows for the 8 of us, dirt floors, broken windows, no door, and the toilet always clogging. Now my children and I have a nice apartment where we have more space, privacy, and carpet where we can be barefoot.
