Foothills Alliance’s sexual trauma program offers multi-service responses to the needs of child and adult (both male and female) sexual trauma survivors in Anderson and Oconee counties. The services include immediate crisis response and long-term counseling. Crisis services include a 24-hour crisis hot-line and accompaniment for victims at local hospital emergency rooms, law enforcement agencies, and court proceedings.
Other free services include new clothing to survivors in emergency rooms, survivor group meetings, support and counseling for family members and other involved in the survivor’s recovery, and referrals to other agencies.
Age-appropriate community education programs are available on a variety of topics, such as date rape, good touch/bad touch, self protections, and healthy relationships.
