  • Males can be victims of sexual assaut. They are typically victimized by male perpetrators. The SAAFE Center has male advocates to specifically work with such clients, and female advocates have received the proper sensitivity training for male clients.


  • Older women who are sexually assaulted or harassed are often reluctant to reach out for help. The SAAFE center has mature staff and volunteers who are available to help clients sort out their options.


  • LGBTQQI receive appropriate and sensitive services as SAAFE Center Advocates are committed to serve and assist this population
  • The SAAFE Center works primarily with adults but also assists adolescents (13 years and older) who have been sexual assaulted or are being sexually harassed by acquaintances (sexual abuse by family members is referred elsewhere).
