Sexual violence takes many forms. It can include sexual harassment, stalking, human trafficking, rape, or any sexual contact where one person does not or is unable to consent due to factors such as force, coercion, or intoxication.

Sexual assault has dramatic long-term impacts. If you are a victim, or know someone who is a victim, there is help. Victims of any type of sexual violence, no matter when the violence took place, can contact their local sexual assault program for support. There are 13 sexual assault programs providing services to all victims of sexual violence in Kentucky. Your local sexual assault program may offer many services and can also provide referrals to other resources. Services are free of charge. Anyone that has been affected by sexual violence is welcome, including family members and friends close to victims.
