SARA House
Mission statement

SARA House is dedicated to the empowerment of sexual assault and domestic violence victims through direct victim services; community education that impacts deep-seated beliefs and behaviors; and the development of a coordinated community response to the crime of sexual assault and domestic violence.

Brief description of services provided

SARA House is a child advocacy center that also serves adult survivors of sexual violence, domestic violence, and human trafficking. We offer forensic exams for youth ages 3-18 (with referral from law enforcement or DHS); we have trained SANEs on staff that offer sexual assault and strangulation exams for youth and adults. We also offer family advocacy, confidential advocacy to adult survivors, information and referrals, therapy, emergency financial assistance, and we do prevention education for elementary age children through high school.
