(810) 238-SAFE PREVENTION EDUCATION Knowledge is power! The YWCA actively works to inform and educate the community about domestic violence and sexual assault – the more awareness and education we spread, the closer we get to eliminate it. Trained staff facilitates informational sessions/discussions with community partners including law enforcement, hospital staff, other services providers, local colleges and community schools.
EMERGENCY RESPONSE TEAM (ERT) Emergency response services are available for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault through local hospitals and law enforcement. Advocates are available on-call 24 hours a day to provide emotional support to survivors during medical exams, explain evidence collection and criminal justice processes.
SEXUAL ASSAULT RESPONSE TEAM (SART) SART, the Sexual Assault Response Team of Genesee County, is a victim-centered community collaborative effort designed to provide a coordinated response to sexual assaults in our community. This team consists of representatives from the Prosecutor’s Office, numerous police departments, SANE trained nurses and management from our local hospitals, Public Safety officers from area colleges and universities, Michigan State Police Crime Lab, and many other community partners. Genesee County’s SART is focused on 1) meeting the needs of sexual assault survivors, and 2) more effectively hold offender’s accountable. The team meets on a monthly basis to work on cross-training for service providers from each entity, improve victim support and communication, and assess the gaps of services in our community.
