SASO offers survivors of sexual violence support, compassion, hope, and healing. We work to end sexual violence through survivor-led advocacy and prevention education that recognizes the connections between oppression and sexual violence.
SASO ensures competent services through continuous advocacy training, an emphasis on self-care, and a tireless dedication to ending sexual violence and oppression. Our staff and team of volunteers are here to support YOU. We seeks empowerment for ALL victims of sexual violence regardless of immigration status, sexual orientation, religion, gender, income status, race, ethnicity, age, and ability and/or disability. We provide support and assistance through 24 hour crisis intervention and counseling; medical and legal advocacy during SANE (medical forensic) examinations, law enforcement interviews, and court proceedings; free weekly support groups; emergency financial assistance; and referrals to community agencies.
