Sexual Assault Services of Racine County’s Statement on Agency Response to Coronavirus (COVID-19)

*UPDATE*
August 17, 2020

Sexual Assault Services (SAS) continues to update service provision in light of the ongoing health risks and limitations necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic.  Safety of staff, volunteers, and clients remains our top priority, while recognizing that many of the services we provide to the community are essential.

Nonessential events, like our annual Seeds of Change luncheon, originally scheduled for April 1 and rescheduled for September 9, have now been cancelled.  Alternative Healing Nights, like our Healing Through Art event, originally scheduled for March 23, are in the process of being converted to virtual events.  Watch our events page here or follow us on Facebook for updates.

Our 24-hour Crisis Line (262-637-7233) continues to be available to anyone who has a question or concern or needs to be referred to services.  We have also resumed 24/7 in person advocacy at Racine County hospitals.  SAS staff have begun to return to the office, and an advocate can often be reached by calling 262-619-1634 Monday through Friday.  If you need to reach a particular staff member, the most reliable way to do so is still through individual email addresses listed here.  If you are visiting one of our offices in person, a face covering is required.  If you do not have a face covering, SAS can provide you with a disposable mask - just ask your advocate.

We sincerely thank you for your patience and continual support as we navigate the constantly changing conditions of this pandemic.  We will continue to modify and adapt services as necessary in order to provide the best possible care for our community.  Stay safe and healthy!

Sexual Assault Services of Racine County’s Statement on Agency Response to Coronavirus (COVID-19)

March 20, 2020

Sexual Assault Services of Racine County (SAS) remains committed to providing our community’s survivors with the care they deserve during this trying time, while also prioritizing the health and safety of those survivors, the SAS staff and volunteers, and the community of Racine County as a whole. With these goals in mind, SAS has decided to postpone our upcoming community events, including our Healing Through Art: Experiencing Hope events in Racine (3/23/2020) and in Burlington (3/25/2020), and our Seeds of Change luncheon at Infusino’s (4/1/2020) until further notice.

Our 24-hour Crisis Line (262-637-7233 and/or 800-656-4673) will continue to be available, and we have a plan in place to provide telephone advocacy, rather than our typical in person advocacy, at Racine County hospitals.  SAS staff are primarily working from home and will continue to regularly check their voicemail messages, but the best way to contact staff at this time is via the individual email addresses here.

We sincerely thank you for your continued support of our mission as we do our best to modify and carry on with our services to the community during these unprecedented circumstances, and we look forward to resuming typical services and rescheduling events as soon as we can.  Watch our Facebook page for updates and helpful resources.
