SARA's Outreach Coordinators are happy to provide allied professionals, community groups, faith organizations, etc. with an overview of SARA's mission and our services in the community. The dynamics of sexual violence and its impact in our community provide a background for discussing the need for our services in the community and what SARA does to support survivors, educate community members, and to prevent sexual violence from occurring in the first place. These presentations will be tailored to meet each group's needs and focus area.
