Our Services

Our team of advocates, forensic nurses, nurse practitioners, therapists, and social workers offer an array of services to those impacted by sexual, physical, and/or relationship violence including:

  • 24-hour helpline - Staff are available around the clock. If you’re looking for caring, supportive assistance, call 425-252-4800. All calls are confidential.
  • Advocacy - We offer specially trained advocates who can provide personal support and resources to help individuals and families through a difficult time. These services are free of charge.
  • Forensic medical exams and evidence collection - These medical exams identify injuries, collect evidence, and assess your overall health after a physical or sexual assault. Medical exam expenses may be covered by the Washington state crime victim compensation fund.
  • Therapy for adults ages 22 and over - Survivors of sexual assault/abuse can receive short term counseling free of charge.

You Matter. You are Valued.

As an organization, we recognize that there are increased rates of violence against community members from marginalized and underrepresented backgrounds. This includes BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color), transgender and gender diverse people, LGBTQIA+ individuals, the undocumented community, unhoused individuals and people living with disabilities. We strive to create a space where every person impacted by violence or neglect feels seen and heard. To assist clients in accessing services using the language they are most comfortable with, interpreters are available for all services.

If you or a loved one has experienced any form of assault, abuse or neglect please give us a call and an advocate will provide you with the information you need. It is normal to have hesitations about labeling something “assault” or “abuse." Please know you do not have to use this language in order to access our services – you decide what feels best to you. You are in control. 

Locations for Forensic Medical Exam

Our services are available 24 hours a day/ 7 days a week at the following locations (unless otherwise indicated):

Mandatory Reporting

Our staff are mandatory reporters. This means we are required to report any assault or abuse of someone under the age of 18 and any vulnerable adult experiencing abuse. However, you may choose to call the hotline anonymously, without giving your name or age, to speak with an advocate to get support.
