Established in 1996, the purpose of the Assault Survivor Kits (ASK) program is to support assault and rape survivors.

We provide support at two DCMC locations — in the hospital setting where acute sexual assault evaluations take place and at the non-acute sexual abuse clinic.  ALA purchased the exam table that is used for each evaluation in the hospital setting.

This program moved to Dell Children’s Medical Center (DCMC) in 2015.  ASK currently provides physical and emotional services to child and adolescent assault survivors seen by SANE nurses (Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners).  We have provided items such as stuffed animals, journals for writing and drawing, “brave kid” capes and clothing.

New clothing and toiletry items are provided to assault/rape victims.

Kits being assembled by volunteers.
