Organization Information

Mission statement: The NWA Center for Sexual Assault provides a safe haven of healing and hope to adult survivors of sexual violence and tirelessly works toward a safer future for all through education and awareness.

About: Founded as NWA Rape Crisis, through its mission-driven work, our Center has offered free comprehensive support to adult survivors of sexual assault since 1982. For over 35 years we have continued to actively counter a culture that condones sexual violence as we work to address the individual and community hurt caused by those who perpetrate. We want every survivor to know YOU ARE NOT ALONE we are here for you.

We work diligently every day to create a culture that supports survivors of rape and sexual assault.

Services: The impact of sexual assault affects the survivor and the survivor's loved ones (secondary survivors). Our comprehensive services are available - in English and Spanish - for anyone in Northwest Arkansas who has been affected by rape or sexual assault.

We provide these FREE services to adult survivors of sexual violence and their loved ones:

Forensic Rape Kit Exam Services. We offer free forensic rape kit exams in a compassionate, non-hospital setting. Rape kit exams gather DNA and other evidence from the survivor's body and can be performed any time within 72 hours of a rape or sexual assault. We have forensic exam clinics in both Washington and Benton counties and we utilize only trained Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners. In addition to collecting evidence, our nurses offer preventative antibiotics for sexually transmitted infections. For more info, click on the Get Help Now header.

Individual Advocacy. Compassionate support, referrals and resources for the survivor and/or their loved ones to assist through every step of the healing process: from reporting to exam to court process - if the survivors chooses to report - or in whatever way the survivor needs support.

Therapeutic Counseling. In-depth talk therapy to assist survivors and/or their loved ones in exploring their long term healing needs. We provide individual, couples and family therapy for anyone dealing with the emotional impact of sexual violence, no matter when it occurred.

Support Groups. Our support groups give sexual assault survivors a safe place to find strength and healing in the company of other survivors. Groups meet weekly at our Center. In addition to our in-house support groups, we can come to your agency, organization or institution to provide support and educational groups for your clients who may be survivors.

24-Hour Crisis Help Line. Crisis intervention, referral information and emotional support to anyone dealing with the aftermath of rape and sexual assault. Speak to someone now at 800-794-4175.

Volunteer opportunities: People can volunteer to staff the 24/7 hotline after attending a volunteer training. We also always need help with event planning, marketing and social media support, graphic design, and office administration tasks.
