Support Services

SARA’s Support Services are available to all survivors of sexual violence, including men, women, and children. Support Services are also available to friends, family, and loved ones of survivors. All of our Support Services are provided free of charge. Survivors of every age, race, gender identity, and sexual orientation are welcome at SARA. We offer services in English and in Spanish.

We are located in Charlottesville, Virginia and serve the city of Charlottesville as well as Albemarle, Louisa, Nelson, Fluvanna and Greene counties.

It can be hard to talk about sexual violence. Some people never tell anyone about what happened and are afraid of being blamed or not believed. Family and friends may want to help but may not know what to do or say. SARA’s staff and volunteers will listen in a caring and understanding way. We offer information and support to help survivors make decisions to support their healing.

When someone has been sexually abused, violated or harassed, it is normal for them to notice changes in their feelings, their body and their actions. These changes may occur immediately or months or years later. It is important to know that everyone responds differently. There is no right way to react, and healing takes time.

SARA’s staff and volunteers are available to help.

Learn more about our Hotline, Advocacy, Therapy, Support Group, and ER Accompaniment services.
