Help RVA Help Others

Each of us is touched in some way by sexual violence. Statistics show that 1 in 4 women and 1 in 11 men will be sexually  assaulted in their lifetimes. It is also estimated that less than 20% of all sexual assaults are reported to the police.

Rape Victim Advocates is dedicated to the healing and empowerment of sexual assault survivors through non-judgmental crisis intervention counseling, individual and group counseling, and medical and legal advocacy in the greater Chicago metropolitan area. RVA provides public education and institutional advocacy in order to improve the treatment of sexual assault survivors and to effect positive change in policies and public attitudes toward sexual assault.

Every donation ensures that no survivor is ever alone.

Every gift allows us to provide services, free of charge, to sexual assault survivors and their loved ones.

Every contribution means that there is a safe place for a survivor to begin their healing journey.

When you make a gift to Rape Victim Advocates, you join hundreds of other supporters who are dedicated to our mission and to our vision. Know that your gift makes a difference in the life of a sexual assault survivor.
