For 30 years, the Sexual Assualt Center, formerly the Rape and Sexual Abuse Center, has been the only organization in Middle Tennessee whose primary purpose is to provide counseling and support to sexual abuse victims.  The Center has a firm policy that services will be available to these victims regardless of their ability to pay.  The Center provides comprehensive treatment yearly for approximately 700 individuals (men, women, and children) and their families, and 100,000 children will participate this school year in the personal safety program.  Additionally the Center provides hospital accompaniment to rape victims, and the crisis line answers over 7,000 calls a year concerning issues of sexual violence.  This grant will allow RASAC to provide healing care for their staff to avoid burnout and vicarious trauma syndrome. Staff Surveys will report positive outcomes and turnover will be reduced by 20%.
