Our Mission Statement
Prince George Sexual Assault Centre provides counselling and support services in a safe and supportive environment for individuals, families and groups. We work with women, men and children to help them overcome the effects of sexual violence. We advocate for societal change that does not tolerate oppression, exploitation or violence in any form. We strive to influence and increase awareness by delivering public education, and together as a community, create a culture free from sexual abuse.
stopping the violence
This program provides feminist based counselling and support to women who have experienced childhood sexual abuse, sexual assault and/or are in violent relationships.
circle of truth
Circle Of Truth provides advocacy, therapeutic volunteer training and educational sessions to the community regarding the impact of childhood and current sexual violence.
This program provides advocacy for young women and men aged 14 through 18 who are young survivors of sexualized trauma in a safe atmosphere conductive to healing.
Child sexual abuse is a traumatic event in the life of children and families, it distorts their sense of their word, their self concept and capacities.
LGBTQ Positive Space
Within the LGBTQ community, transgender people and bisexual women face the most alarming rates of sexual violence. Among both of these populations, sexual violence begins early, often during childhood. We want to end this cycle and provide support for those who have endured this violence.
