Sexual Assault is a crime. It is motivated by a need to control, humiliate, and harm. Sexual Assault is the most under-reported of all crimes. Most often, people are sexually assaulted by someone they know. RCSAS has been serving this community for over 44 years and hopes to bring healing to those in need.
