Assisting assault and trauma survivors is the goal of the Assault Survivor Kits® Program. Because the survivors’ clothing is often kept as evidence or has been destroyed in an accident or soiled due to illness, having a change of clothes and a few hygiene items becomes a critical necessity during this vulnerable time of their lives.
The survivors are provided “kits” containing new clothing, toiletries, and comfort items while they are receiving care in hospitals and local support agencies, giving them a chance to feel more comfortable in such a horrible situation.
In addition, art and play therapy items are given to agencies that counsel children.
Pictured to the right are samples of Assault Survivor Kits for children and members of the committee assembling kits for delivery to local agencies.
