How to Talk About Sexual Assault

What is sexual assault — and how does KCSARC help?

Our Therapy Services

Building resilience in recovery, one session at a time

There are many different approaches to therapy. Most people have the idea that all therapy looks like what they see depicted on shows, or even what they have experienced for generalized conditions. But KCSARC's approach is unique and specific to addressing trauma.

Legal Advocacy: We’re with you, every step of the way

KCSARC’s Legal Advocacy team is the liaison between survivors and our criminal justice system. The Advocacy program assists survivors of sexual assault and their families as they navigate one of the most complex systems and processes they’ll ever face. KCSARC provides 90% of sexual assault legal advocacy services in King County, working across three different court systems and 39 police jurisdictions.

Justice system must work for all survivors

We agree with and support the call to challenge the injustice and systemic racism in our criminal justice system and to make long overdue investments in the Black community. We believe Black lives matter, and we stand with Black, Indigenous and other people of color.

As elected officials make decisions about police funding, they must offer a clear vision of how changes will affect sexual assault victims who are participating in the criminal justice system.

24-Hour Support Just a Call Away

"Resource Line, may I help you?”

Those six words connected more than 3,600 callers last year to the help and information they needed following a sexual assault. 

KCSARC’s 24-Hour Resource Line is the backbone of our service. For many callers, it’s the first step to finding support and healing, either for themselves, their child, or another family member. The advocates who answer their call are sometimes the first people survivors tell about their abuse, whether it happened that day, or took place years ago. 

Resources: 2020 COVID Response

Staying at home is one of the primary ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19. It's important that we all practice "social distancing" - staying at least 6 feet apart where possible, washing our hands frequently, avoid touching our faces to avoid getting sick or spreading the virus to others.
