Whether you have experienced a sexual assault yourself, or want to know more about how to help your child, a friend or someone else, we’re here 24/7 with support and information to empower you to take your next steps.
Anytime someone is forced, coerced and/or manipulated into any unwanted or illegal sexual activity, it is a sexual assault. Sexual assault or abuse are terms we use in our work to talk about the broad spectrum of unwanted or illegal behaviors. The term sexual assault, used throughout our site, is generally used in reference to adults. When it involves a child or teen who has been victimized, we frequently use the term child sexual abuse.
KCSARC is an independent nonprofit serving survivors and their families throughout King County and engaging communities in building a world without sexual assault.
KCSARC’s long history as a trusted and expert resource gives us the experience and expertise to empower survivors, change attitudes, shape statewide policy, remove barriers, and hold systems accountable.
A gift to the King County Sexual Assault Resource Center sends a powerful message to survivors and their families: you are not alone.
Your generous support ensures advocacy, therapy and prevention services are available for survivors and their families right here in our community.

The Link to Prevention Podcast Season 1, Episode 7: In this episode, the KCSARC prevention team sits down to discuss the topic of bystander intervention. The prevention team defines bystander intervention, as well as the term “upstander.” Jessica and Hannah walk through the ways they teach high school students about bystander intervention, including the 4 Ds model of intervening. There’s more than one way to intervene! The prevention team also shares some of their own examples of bystander intervention throughout the conversation.
We wish to acknowledge that KCSARC serves all of King County, which is on unceded ancestral land that belongs to Indigenous peoples. These lands are the traditional home of the Coast Salish peoples, including but not limited to the Duwamish, Muckleshoot, Puyallup, Snoqualmie, Stillaguamish, Suquamish, and Tulalip tribes. These acknowledgments do not fulfill our obligations to build and foster authentic relationships with Indigenous communities, but serve as a step in honoring the land we are on.
