In-Person Sexual Assault Response – providing 24/7 confidential and anonymous access to in-person Sexual Assault advocacy, ongoing advocacy, free community support groups throughout the year, and access to client assistance funds;

Specialized Advocacy - providing direct advocacy, outreach and case management to those in special populations including survivors experiencing homelessness, those involved in the sex industry, and youth;

Outreach and Education – providing three extensive 40-hour volunteer Basic Advocacy Trainings to the community, outreach to area schools, businesses and community centers, and violence prevention education.

Support Groups – PWCL offers free and confidential support groups throughout the year.  Support groups run for 10 weeks at a time and are usually in the evenings on a weekday.

We continually screen for our support groups. These groups include:
SASSE Support Group (Sexual Assault Survivors Support & Empowerment)
