Fund to assist sexual assault victims and their advocates in coping with natural disasters

To assist efforts in disaster-stricken areas, the National Sexual Violence Resource Center collaborated with several organizations in the field to establish The Relief Fund for Sexual Assault Victims. The Fund was established in 2005 to collect donations that will aid sexual assault victims and advocacy programs in the United States impacted by disasters.

The Fund is designed to:

  • Support the needs of sexual assault survivors

  • Support the needs of sexual assault advocacy program staff

  • Assist with expanded direct service capacity needs

  • Assist with prevention initiatives to protect evacuees from sexual violence

  • Support relocation/rebuilding efforts for damaged sexual assault advocacy programs

Historically, we know that individuals are more vulnerable to sexual assault in disaster-stricken areas, because basic services and resources are not readily available. 100% of the donations will go to victims in affected areas. Administrative costs are being donated by the NSVRC. Visit the Relief Fund website for more information on how you can help, and join NSVRC in extending our support to those impacted across the United States by Hurricane Sandy.
