Sexual Abuse/Assault

If you have been a recent victim of a sexual assault, in Charlottesville, and you want to report the crime to the police. You need to go to the University of Virginia Medical Center Emergency Department. DO NOT change your clothes or shower before you go. If it is already past that time, you can still report the crime to the police, but the lack of physical evidence makes prosecution more challenging—but not impossible.

Local resources include:

Sexual Assault Resource Agency

Shelter for Help in Emergency
Provides short term safe housing for women and their children fleeing an abusive partner. Very informative and helpful website.
