Our services are private, confidential, and free. We serve all people affected by domestic violence regardless of gender identity, age, housing situation, or immigration status.

Domestic and sexual violence and sexual assault are issues intimately tied with a person’s sexual health status, and we seek to recognize those connections and address them in a non-judgmental manner. Using a risk-reduction model, our advocates provide guidance in all matters related to sexual health and sexuality in both individual and group settings. Our aim is to advocate for our clients, giving victims and survivors of abuse the tools and information so that they may take ownership of their bodies and sexualities.

In conjunction with our other programs, our Sexual Health Advocacy program works to highlight the importance of sexual health and fulfillment in the overall healing process. 

The core components of this program are:

  • One-on-one sexual health advocacy which includes  rapid HIV & HCV testing if desired. We also offer free safer sex supplies.
  • Support groups that touch upon domestic violence, risk-reduction, body image, sexual health, safety-planning, healthy relationships, how to talk to youth about sex, and more!  Based on need and availability, we can also provide childcare and help with bus-passes.
  • Trainings for providers/staff on issues of domestic violence and sexual health. We are willing to go off-site and come to you!
  • Educational workshops and special events for the public, including collaborative forums, conferences and health fairs.

All of these services are offered in English as well as Spanish, and with particular attention paid to the group’s composition, so we can tailor our services to the population and their background.
