The Healing Place provides a safe and nurturing environment for victims of sexual assault who need shelter. Victims can stay at the Healing Place for as long as necessary until they feel safe returning to their home.
We have an Open door policy, all day ever day. Come on in, we are here for you. Need a conversation? A pep talk? Or even someone just to take your mind off things. Our staff can assist you through your emotional healing.
Sexual Assault Forensics Examination
The Healing Place is equipped to provide victims with the option of performing a Sexual Assault Forensics Examination (SAFE) Kit at our location.

Clients can be provided assistance in accessing transportation to the Healing Place and while at the Healing Place if necessary.
