CENTER FOR SEXUAL ASSAULT SURVIVORS

HELP US REACH OUR GOAL OF $15,000

 

      Walk a Mile in Her Shoes is the largest Men's March to End Sexual Assault and Gender Violence on the peninsula!

 

      How it works:  You collect pledges, then walk one mile in women's high heels.

 

      All donations support the Center for Sexual Assault Survivors, a non profit rape crisis center.  The Center is the only stand alone  rape crisis center serving the cities of Hampton, Newport News, Poquoson and Smithfield and the counties of York and Isle of Wight.  We provide individual counseling, support groups, 24 hour crisis line, hospital/legal companionship, awareness events and professional training AT NO COST. Donations help pay for childrens' art therapy supplies, hotline costs,  education materials for parents and supplies to help victims of sex trafficking in the Hampton Roads area.

     Help us keep our services free to survivors of sexual assault.  During fiscal year 2015, the Center provided services to 483 men, women and children who have experienced sexual violence.
