How RSVP Can Help You

We believe that you are never to blame for an assault against you.

We are here to assist you in the process of healing from the traumatic incident.

We can act as a personal coordinator/liaison (advocate) between you and law enforcement, medical personnel, the University, mental health care professionals and other agencies or services.

We help ensure that you get the information and support you need, that you are listened to, and that you are treated with the sensitivity and respect every victim/survivor deserves.


Free, Confidential Services
