Laurel Center

Intervention for Domestic & Sexual Violence

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month


Sexual violence happens in our community. In 2020 in Virginia alone, 4,423 forcible sex offenses were reported to the police. That number does not include the estimated 2/3 of assaults that go unreported. Each year, The Laurel Center serves hundreds of victims of sexual violence through legal advocacy, psychoeducational counseling, therapy, and other supportive services. The Laurel Center’s Crisis Hotline takes thousands of calls each year, many of which come from survivors of sexual assault.


During the month of April, we take the time to recognize Sexual Assault Awareness Month and help survivors find their voice by bringing awareness to this crime and the impact it has on our community.
