We believe that:

  • Prevention of sexual abuse is everyone’s responsibility. The community has a responsibility to support survivors in their healing and to work towards ending sexual violence.
  • Sexual assault and sexual abuse are crimes that involve control and power.
  • Survivors have the right to receive the support they need to heal from abuse.
  • The trauma of sexual assault and childhood sexual abuse can severely impact the quality of life for
    survivors.
  • Ensuring confidentiality and respecting the choices of survivors are top priorities.
  • Healing that results in long term enhanced quality of life takes time.
  • The impacts of sexual assault and childhood abuse permeate all of society.
  • All survivors deserve access to services.
  • Sexual violence will continue until the root causes of violence against women and children are addressed.
  • Working collaboratively with the community is essential to address the needs of survivors.
