In 2002, the Sexual Assault Crisis Team became the first shelter in the United States to offer specialized services for survivors of sexual violence. Our emergency shelter and services are gender inclusive and available to all non-offending victims of sexual violence and to their family members. We are committed to ending sexual violence against all people, regardless of gender, gender identity or sexual orientation, disability, age, class, race, color, or spiritual beliefs.
The preeminent voice against sexual violence and human trafficking in Washington County, Vermont since 1984, we continue to offer a wide array of services to all those affected by sexual violence. We have a 24 hour crisis hotline, an emergency shelter available to all victims, legal and medical information, support groups, and therapist referrals. As a leading advocate in the field of sexual violence prevention, our mission is to educate the community about the prevalence of sexual violence and to advocate for its immediate end.
