aBOUT THE SAFE CENTER
SAFE Center is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide comprehensive medical forensic examinations to both male and female survivors of sexual assault ages 12 and up. With patient consent, evidence is collected and documented by specially trained, forensic nurse examiners in a safe, secure and supportive environment. Advocates are available to offer emotional support, information and connection to additional resources.
Receiving immediate medical attention is one of the most important things that you can do if you have been sexually assaulted. You may have injuries that need to be treated, and you may want to address and receive treatment for the possibility of pregnancy and contracting sexually transmissible infections (STIs). All of these services are available to survivors of sexual assault within SAFE Center.
