If you have been sexual assaulted or raped, call our Crisis Line or come to our Sexual Assault Response Center. We will provide immediate support.
Our Nurse Examiners are specially trained in responding to all aspects of sexual assault trauma. They will provide you with confidential and compassionate care in a respectful setting.
LACASA nurses are part of the national Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) program, which teaches nurses unique skills in responding to cases of sexual assault, sexual abuse and rape. They also are experts at forensic evidence gathering.
Upon your arrival at our Sexual Assault Response Center, we will help coordinate every aspect of your care. Our advocates will provide essential information and support as you make critical decisions.
LACASA’s On-Call Response Team will support you during the immediate aftermath of your trauma, and our advocates will provide ongoing support as you recover from your experience.
If you are not ready to return home following the assault, you may consider a stay of recovery at our Crisis Shelter, or our advocates may assist you by providing information on resources, next steps and safety.
NOTE: Forensic exams must be conducted within 72 hours of a sexual assault. Our program is for survivors of sexual assault who are 12 years-of-age or older. Call our Crisis Line at 866-522-2725 for more information.
