We provide clothing and hygiene kits for survivors of assault, both women and children, who arrive at the emergency rooms of PeaceHealth Southwest Washington Medical Center (Vancouver), Legacy Salmon Creek Hospital (Vancouver) and PeaceHealth St John’s Hospital (Longview).
Last year, Assistance League of Southwest Washington’s Assault Survivor Kits donated 121 clothing kits to three local hospitals for survivors of assault, both women and children. Committee members have participated in training sessions for information in providing this service in the most helpful and caring manner.
“It is a good feeling to be able to give our patients new clothing and items to freshen up with before they are discharged. The sooner old items are discarded and replaced with new, the sooner the healing process can begin. We depend on the Survivor Kits and we thank everyone involved for making the kits available for our patients.””
