The sexual assault support services program began in 1979. The addition of this program made the Crisis Call Center also a “Rape Crisis Center” for northern Nevada. We offer a 24-hour rape hotline through the Crisis Lines. In addition, we have advocates who do additional phone counseling, meet survivors at the SART Clinic and provide face-to-face crisis intervention during the immediate period after the assault, additionally provide legal advocacy - accompanying survivors to police interviews, court appearances, and other services the survivor may need access to. SASS provides referrals to counselors in the area who specialize in helping victims of sexual assault become survivors.
