Alexandria Sexual Assault Center

Alexandria, Virginia

Sexual Assault Hotline at 703.746.HELP


A Sexual Assault Center advocate is available to accompany you at the hospital 24/7-all it takes is a call to the hotline.


About the Alexandria Sexual Assault Center

In August of 1975, the Alexandria Commission on the Status of Women established the Rape Victim Companion Program, which later became the Sexual Assault Response and Awareness Program, then in 2011, the Alexandria Sexual Assault Center. The program offers support to victims of sexual assault and their families and friends.

Trained volunteers and staff are available 24 hours a day to provide:

crisis intervention and
emotional support

      advocacy with medical,

police, and court systems

short-term individual
and group counseling       

information and referrals

In addition to services for individuals, the staff is also available to provide training's, information, and presentations to local schools and organizations.

The Sexual Assault Center offers services for:

sexual assault (i.e.rape, attempted rape, fondling, indecent exposure, etc.) survivors and their family and friends sexual harassment and stalking victims

      women and men of any age, race, ethnicity, immigration status, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical ability, etc.

Many services are offered in both English and Spanish.  Staff and volunteers use a confidential translation service to support survivors who speak many more languages. 

Support Groups

Survivors of sexual assault or childhood sexual abuse sometimes find it helpful to talk about their feelings with others who have had similar experiences.  All groups are time limited, and address a variety of issues related to sexual violence.  Discussion topics may include:  guilt, shame, fear, anger, trust, self-esteem and

relationships with family and friends.  Listed below are groups offered throughout the year by the Sexual Assault Center.  The times and dates are subject to change, and this webpage will be updated accordingly.  Unless otherwise noted, all groups will be held at the Sexual Assault Center at 421
King Street in Alexandria.  See the flyer on support groups.  Please call the Sexual Assault Hotline at 703.683.7273 for more information or to
register for a group or class.
*Pre-registration is required for all groups and classes

the flyer for more information.
