All Are Welcome
We are committed to serving all survivors and working toward the prevention of sexual violence. KASAP and its member programs (local sexual assault programs) do not discriminate against anyone on the basis of disability, sexual orientation, gender, sex, religion, race, color, national origin, immigration status, incarceration, age, socioeconomic status, level of education, language proficiency, veteran status, political affiliations, beliefs, or type of sexual victimization. Whether the violence occurred recently, years ago, or is still happening, we are here to help.
We acknowledge that sexual violence does not happen in a vacuum; it impacts different groups in different ways. We also recognize that each individual survivor and community member come to our programs with diverse backgrounds and multi-layered identities that affect their access to medical and sexual assault services, experience with the justice system, needs, and feelings of safety. As service providers, we are committed to meeting people where they are and working to ensure that our services are inclusive and responsive to the real needs of survivors.
The Kentucky Association of Sexual Assault Programs, Inc. (KASAP) is the statewide coalition of the 13 rape crisis centers in the Commonwealth. The mission of KASAP is to speak with a unified voice against sexual victimization.
Services provided in part by state and federal funds.
We are committed to supporting you. Whether you experienced sexual violence in the past or it is hurting you now, we’re here to listen and connect you to resources closest to you. Services are free, confidential, and available 24/7.
KASAP provides training and resources for professionals in the Commonwealth who respond to and seek to prevent sexual violence.
Join our movement! KASAP's statewide network of survivors, advocates, and community members are working toward a violence-free Kentucky and we can't do it without you.
