Your donation is helping our team empower victims of sexual assault during COVID-19.


For 35 years, we at the Sexual Violence Center (SVC) have helped individuals navigate the crisis and trauma around sexual assault. We provide our services for free, including:

Emergency-room support: Our advocates work independently of law enforcement or the hospital system to support victims through medical examinations and evidence collection ("rape kits"). 

A 24/7 crisis support telephone line: Trained advocates are available around-the-clock to offer anonymous and immediate support by phone. 

Individual in-person counseling: We believe in the tremendous power of an advocate sitting with a victim/survivor, validating that they are believed, that what happened was not their fault, and that they are not alone. 

Legal resources and referrals:  We educate victim/survivors on their options and support them when filing restraining orders, reporting to the police and/or connecting with legal representation. 

Support groups: We have several groups to support victims and survivors from all walks of life who are interested in continuing to move forward with the help of a safe and supportive community. 

Helping Forge a Culture Change

We also work to build awareness among young people in schools and those in professional settings by breaking the silence about harassment and sexual violence. We debunk dangerous myths and facilitate essential discussion around consent—moving beyond the flawed narrative of "no means no". 

We support anyone and everyone—from all genders and backgrounds—affected by sexual violence, and we work to make our services accessible to traditionally under-served populations. We work in Carver, Hennepin, and Scott counties.
