We help to provide better outcomes for victims/survivors of sexual violence and families affected.
Our mission is to provide tangible support to victims of sexual violence. We also strive to raise awareness of sexual violence in the community.
Our vision is to create a community where victims have necessary items while starting their recovery journey after sexual trauma.
We also work to create awareness to the general public about the prevalence of sexual violence in our society.

THANK YOU FOR MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Our mission is to provide tangible support during some of life’s most challenging moments. To this end, we’ve collaborated with Mayo Clinic’s Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANEs) to offer specific comfort items to victims during their visits to the Mayo Clinic’s Emergency Room.
This is our second year in a row partnering with Mayo Clinic's ER!
The harsh reality is that sexual assault affects too many within our communities, perhaps even individuals close to you. We believe that, together, we can extend a helping hand to those in need during these trying times.
I invite you to join our mission and make a difference in southeast Minnesota.
