Due to the current concerns regarding COVID-19 SACC has made a decision to suspend in person services to ensure both client safety and that of the staff. We are open and providing services virtually until such time we can safely resume services back in our office space. We continue to accept new referrals and new requests for service. Please note our 24 hour crisis line will still be available at 519-253-9667. During this uncertain time, please practice self care including mindfulness. There are many websites and apps that have resources on mindfulness and self care. Stay safe.
Sexualized violence can happen to anyone.
We are here to help.
Research shows that people who have been through trauma get better faster and more easily when they have support and counsellors who can help them move forward.
Our service provides a twenty-four hour crisis line to survivors of sexual victimization. This service provides emotional support, problem solving strategies, information, and referrals when necessary. We provide information to those who are assisting survivors of sexual violence such as friends, family members, and other community organizations.
Counselling is available to survivors of sexual victimization (sexual assault, sexual abuse and incest) of any age, who reside in the Windsor-Essex County area. Services to children who are victimized are co-ordinated with the Children’s Aid Society. Counselling support is also available for non-offending significant others. Satellite offices are available.
We participate in opportunities to educate the community on the realities of sexual violence, as well as its impact, and to implement initiatives that will reduce sexual violence in our community. Community educational resources are available for download here.
Sexual Assault Crisis Centre is a place where human rights are respected and
where lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, non-binary, two spirit and queer people
are all welcomed and supported.
