Get Help

Have you been sexually assaulted? Do you know what sexual assault is? Do you know what to do if you or someone you know has been sexually assaulted? Do you know how and who to get help from? Do you know what and where services are available?

There are many forms of sexual violence, including attacks (such as forcible rape), intimate contact without consent (such as child molestation, sex with an intoxicated person, or groping), and non-physical aggression (such as stalking, verbal coercion, or harassment). Sexual assault has dramatic long-term impacts, so if you are a victim or know someone who is a victim then there is help. Victims of any type of sexual assault which occurred recently or long ago, including rape, sodomy, child sexual abuse (available at some centers), incest, and sexual harassment are able to get help. There are 13 rape crisis centers providing services to all Kentuckians and college students attending a Kentucky College or University, even if their home is outside of Kentucky. Your local rape crisis center may offer many services and can also provide referrals to other resources. Services are free of charge but some long term services may charge based on a sliding scale. There's assistance to both female and male victims, as well as family members and friends close to victims of any type of sexual assault.
