    EMPOWER over 450 victims and strengthen families by providing specialized advocacy services as they connect to resources and rebuild their lives.

    Promote RESILIENCY in over 350 survivors by providing specialized therapy services as they work to heal their bodies, minds, and spirits.

    Seek JUSTICE for over 250 children by providing specialized forensic interview services; allowing each child to tell their story.


    The effects of child abuse and sexual violence impact not only the victim, but the family and the community as a whole.  This year alone, PASAC will serve over 1,000 unduplicated victims and families, promoting empowerment, resiliency, and justice across our region. 

    We cannot do this work alone. Supporting survivors and ending violence is possible, but it takes each of us.
