Our Mission & Philosophy

Our Mission

To foster a culture where attitudes and behaviors that perpetuate sexual violence are rejected, survivors are supported, community members are educated and those who commit incidents of sexual violence are held accountable.

Our Philosophy

We trust in the power of advocacy and education. We believe in diverse and safe accessible services as they are fundamental to social change and empowering survivors.

At the SVRO, our work is driven by our communities needs. Survivors and all those affected by sexual violence will be provided with compassionate services, dignity, privacy, and respect.
