The mission of AMHC Sexual Assault Services is to promote healing and justice to all who are affected by sexual violence through advocacy, education, and prevention.
AMHC Sexual Assault Services has provided services to individuals who are affected by sexual violence since 1984. Their advocates and educators serve Maine’s Aroostook, Hancock, and Washington Counties.
Their dedicated website outlines their services and has a comprehensive list of resources that are available.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE. There is help available and they are just a phone call away. Someone is on the other end 24/7.
Advocacy for survivors of sexual violence, their families, and friends, including a 24-hour crisis and support line, support groups, crisis intervention and information, and help finding other community resources.
Support for survivors 24 hours a day. Advocates can go with survivors to the hospital or doctor’s office, to the police, or to court. It doesn’t matter when the violence happened. Advocates are also there to help families and friends.
Community awareness-building and prevention education for all ages and audiences on a range of topics, including sexual violence prevention, sexual violence, sexual harassment, internet safety, and personal body safety.
