About Niagara Region Sexual Assault Centre

IF YOU HAVE JUST BEEN SEXUALLY ASSAULTED

 From this moment on you have choices:

  • You can go to the hospital for treatment
  • No one will call the police without your permission
  • You will be treated by a team that is specially trained in sexual assault issues
  • Emergency room staff put violent crime cases at the top of the treatment list
  • You will be treated right away.

 


 

The Niagara Region Sexual Assault Centre, Carsa Inc., provides services in a safe and comfortable environment for survivors of child sexual abuse, incest and adult sexual assault.

We offer a 24 hour crisis line, emergency services, individual and group counselling, accompaniment and advocacy through medical and legal proceedings, public education programs and community events.

ALL SERVICES ARE FREE AND CONFIDENTIAL

We are a non-profit, community based organization providing unconditional and nonjudgmental support and empowerment to those who have survived any form of sexual violence.

We believe that any form of sexual abuse is an abuse of power and control and is an act of aggression and violence over an individual. If you or someone you know is a victim of sexual assault, we can help.

We are a member of Ontario Coalition of Rape Crisis Centres and Canadian Association of Sexual Assault Centres.
