Resources for Sexual Violence Survivors

The overwhelming media coverage of yesterday's Supreme Court confirmation hearings about sexual violence can be very difficult for survivors and their loved ones.

It is important for victims of sexual assault to know they are not alone and that they are not to blame. It is estimated that one in three girls and one in six boys will be sexually assaulted by the age of 18. According to the United States Department of Justice, a rape or attempted rape occurs every 5 minutes in the United States.

How to Get Help:

In Connecticut, there is a statewide network of sexual assault programs that can be reached by calling the statewide sexual assault hotline: 1-888-999-5545 (English) or 1-888-568-8332 (Spanish). Free and confidential sexual assault crisis services include: 24 hour hotline with immediate access to trained, certified counselors; crisis intervention and short-term counseling; accompaniment and advocacy through the medical and police systems; preparation, accompaniment and advocacy through the court system; information and referrals for other needs; support groups; TTY access during office hours; sign language interpreters available; male counselors; emergency transportation by arrangement; professional training, community education, and prevention programs.
