Our Mission

To support survivors of sexual trauma, improve systems response, and create social change to end sexual violence.

STAR® is looking for highly motivated and passionate women and men interested in working with sexual trauma survivors in our community. As a small non-profit organization, we rely on committed community members to provide support to survivors on our 24/7 hotline and accompany survivors during forensic exams during day and night.

STAR® is largely supported by financial contributions from community members and local businesses. By making a secure online donation, you will allow us to continue providing services to survivors of sexual trauma at no cost and promoting prevention through awareness, education and social action. No donation is too big or too small!
