April is sexual assault awareness month. The Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network reports that every 73 seconds, an American is sexually assaulted. Sexual assault can range from harassment to direct physical sexual abuse. Everyone has a role to play in preventing sexual assault. There are many different ways that you can step in or make a difference if you see someone at risk. The key to keeping others safe is learning how to intervene in a way that fits the situation and your comfort level. Do what you can to interrupt the situation. A simple distraction can give the person at risk a chance to get to a safe place.
Every year, Safe Haven hosts several events to increase awareness,
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and we have chosen to focus our blog posts on types of abuse survivors experience. This week we are examining marital rape, its prevalence in abusive relationships, and the barriers survivors face in identifying it.
Safe Haven offers support groups for adults, but there have also been support groups recently added this year for youth. With the addition of our Youth Advocate in February, we have a significant increase in youth programming and services.
