promoting respect, preserving dignity
The SAPR program provides comprehensive services that center on awareness and prevention education, victim advocacy and overall system response. The Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC) ensures sexual assault survivors are assigned an Uniformed Victim Advocate (UVA) or Installation Victim Advocate (VA) to assist in determining what they wish to do, where to get help, and how they choose to report the assault. Advocates accompany survivors to medical visits, court proceedings, and other appointments as requested.
The SAPR program provides crisis intervention and support services to sexual assault survivors, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you or someone you know has experienced sexual assault, you are not alone. Help and support is available.
