Sexual Assault Response Network (SARN)
SARN advocates are available to assist survivors at the hospital and with law enforcement immediately following an assault and can help connect a survivor to the resources at HelpLine and in our community.
- A free, 24-hour information, referral and crisis line at 1.800.684.2324
- Individual support at hospitals and law enforcement agencies.
- Survivors of sexual assault workshops.
- One-on-one crisis intervention and advocacy.
- Healing workshops for survivors & their support people.
- Annual Retreat.
- Sexual assault prevention and education.
Even if the assault happened years ago, the SARN program at HelpLine can still help. Unfortunately, many survivors do not think they need help until months or years after the assault. Remember, it’s never too late to get help.

SARN Upcoming Events
Counseling for Survivors
Survivors of sexual assault can experience a wide variety of normal reactions to a traumatic event. These reactions can include:
- Change in appetite
- Easily startled
Without proper care and attention, traumatic events can lead to an increased likelihood of developing substance abuse and/or addiction; anxiety and/or depression and interfere with daily levels of functioning. At HelpLine, we offer survivor-centered trauma services and various support groups.
