Prevention • Intervention • Support • Education
The Coalition is the Rape Crisis Center for Ventura County. The Crisis Response Intervention Program (CRI) provides intervention, emergency response, advocacy and accompaniment to victims of sexual assault 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Through the CRI program, we offer crisis counseling and intervention, needs assessment, emergency shelter, assistance with restraining orders and linkage to appropriate community resources as well as counseling services for survivors of sexual assault and non-offending care givers and a 24-hour bilingual hotline.
The CRI program’s staff is comprised of skilled professionals, Marriage and Family Therapists and MFT Interns and Trainees, all of whom are trained specifically to deal with sexual assault.

WAYS TO GIVE
Our efforts are possible because of caring, compassionate individuals and organizations who believe victims deserve better and brighter futures, without violence and abuse. Thank you for choosing to support The Coalition and the families and communities we serve.
When a person exits a life of abuse, they have few, if any, possessions. Even with the promise of freedom, it is a frightening and confusing time. We seek to help ease the process of restoration as much as we can by providing counseling, comfort, and skills that can assist with the transition to a new life.
Our supporters stand at the center of every level of our intervention work. We would not be able to continue in this crucial work if it were not for your support. Thank you.

WHAT IS SEXUAL ASSAULT?
Sexual assault is any involuntary sexual act in which a person is threatened, coerced, or forced to engage against their will.
I’VE BEEN SEXUALLY ASSAULTED
It is your right to seek help and support following an assault from hospitals, law enforcement, and your local advocacy agency.
While you can never completely protect yourself from sexual assault, there are some things you can do to help reduce your risk of being assaulted.
