Ever year, CMSAC responds to over 300 new cases of sexual assault. Our trauma-informed team provides critical services to these victims.
CMSAC is a 24-hour crisis intervention agency providing direct services to those individuals who have been affected by any form of sexual violence. Every year at least 49% of new sexual assault cases involve victims under the age of 18. The Center's purpose is to provide trauma-informed direct services to victims of sexual assault, their partners, families, coworkers and friends. CMSAC provides free and confidential services to individuals and organizations within Stearns, Benton, Sherburne, and Wright Counties of Central Minnesota. CMSAC is in collaboration with community groups and professional agencies to continue to work toward an increased social awareness of sexual assault through victim-centered services that are sensitive to the needs of each individual. CMSAC strives to provide victims information on their rights and options with the focus on healing and recovery. It is a goal of the agency to educate and provide factual information, challenge attitudes and beliefs that make up a rape culture, and ultimately to eradicate sexual violence. One of our more recent endeavors focuses on addressing human/sex trafficking and providing Safe Harbor services to youth.
