Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Sexual violence will personally impact 1 in 4 women and 1 in 6 men during their lifetimes. We believe that early, effective intervention following sexual violence can largely mitigate longterm mental health effects and can lead to more successful criminal justice prosection and coordinated case management across allied partner agencies.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Accredited Child Advocacy Center

The CAC is a safe, neutral, child-friendly setting where victims of child abuse can talk about what happened with trained staff. We offer trauma therapy, court advocacy, and a specially designed forensic interview room where representatives from our Multidisciplinary Team come together to provide a thorough and efficient process that improves investigations and lessens trauma for child victims.

Population(s) Served
Caregivers
Children and youth

If you have recently been assaulted, or if the assault occurred a while ago, you have options. Whatever you decide to do, the Collins Center is here to help. We provide services for women, men, and children – many of which are free, confidential, and available in Spanish. Interpretation is also available for services in additional languages.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Sexual violence affects most of us either personally or through the experience of a loved one. In fact, 1 in 4 women and 1 in 5 men in Virginia have been sexually assaulted before age 18. Because of its prevalence, it is important to know about this issue and how to support those affected by it. The Collins Center offers a variety of prevention programs tailored to the unique needs of our community.

Population(s) Served
Adults

The Collins Center's therapy team uses a trauma-informed approach to journeying with survivors and their non-offending family members. With extensive training and specialization in the field of sexual violence, the therapy team works together to provide trauma-informed outpatient mental health services to children, youth, and adults.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The elimination of sexual violence and its impact in our community.

Crisis support, prevention education, trauma-informed counseling, accompaniment, non-offending caregiver support.

Well-informed and trained staff that includes forensic interviewers, licensed counselors, crisis advocates, prevention specialists, hotline personnel, and experienced management.

We have served thousands of survivors and their non-offending caregivers over the last three decades. We have given prevention strategy presentations and formed vital partnerships with law enforcement, schools, daycare facilities, houses of worship, other non-profits, city and county leadership, and local health providers to make sure victims of sexual violence are aware of and have access to our services. We will continue to respond to incidents of sexual violence while believing that community-level prevention education can eliminate the threat of sexual assault in the future.
