The program has been serving our community since 1994. When assault victims arrive at the hospital, they may be asked to leave their clothing as evidence. In the past, the victim was sent home or to the police station in scrubs from the emergency room. Assistance League of Mid-Missouri provides local hospitals with Assault Survivor Kits®, packages of clothing, given to the victim instead of scrubs. The kits are packaged in a wide range of adult and children’s sizes.
