Support sexual assault services
PAVSA has been serving survivors of sexual violence in southern St. Louis county and other parts of northeastern MN for the last 45 years. During that time we have offered support through a 24/7 helpline, legal advocacy, mental health services, therapy, community education and support groups.
During this time of isolation, it is more important than ever for us to continue reaching out to those most vulnerable to violence to provide support. Our staff are currently providing video check-ins, text and phone support. We've moved our trauma-informed yoga group to a virtual platform. We have created virtual community education presentations for schools to use in their curriculum during this difficult time. April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month which is a very busy time for us. Unfortunately, we had to cancel all of our fundraisers and were only able to move one online. Please help us continue to provide these invaluable services to our community during a time when it is most needed. If we raise $1000 by May 10th, we can receive a match!
$10 supports outreach by circulating hygiene kits
$20 helps cover the virtual platforms used to connect with survivors
$30 fills the cancelled fundraisers void
$50 helps fund a 24 hour helpline shift
$125 supports 1 session of virtual trauma-informed yoga
Take Care! Thank you for your support!
