April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month

April is an exciting time in Alaska. Days get longer, winter starts to disappear, and we bring our community together to raise awareness about prevention, education, support, and advocacy for Survivors.

Crisis Line Responder Training

The Crisis Line is the heart of our organization's services and often serves as the first point of contact for sexual assault survivors. Staff members answer the line during business hours and volunteers answer the line from the comfort of their home during the evening, weekend, and holiday hours. A 40 hour training and commitment to answering the line at least three shifts a month is required of all volunteers.
