Our Mission

"Sometimes the difference between justice and injustice is a forensic nurse."    Anonymous

We recognize that sexual assault is complicated and confusing—and difficult to talk about.  Sexual assault is one of the most under reported (and not talked about) crimes that include rape, fondling, molestation and any other sexual contact that is unwanted and non-consensual.

 Sexual assault knows no boundaries.  It does not discriminate based on gender, race, age, socio-economic status or sexual orientation.  Sexual assault can occur between strangers or more commonly between people who know each other.  Sexual assault occurs between acquaintances, friends, classmates, teammates, neighbors, lovers, spouses, and partners as well as between every family relationship possible. Regardless of who, what, when or why of an assault one thing is always true; the person who is sexually assaulted is NEVER to blame for the assault. If you or a loved one has been sexually assaulted, remember, you are not alone.  Break the silence. When YOU SPEAK ...WE LISTEN.  We listen and offer choices for healthcare needs, reporting options, and resources to begin a journey of healing. We are forensic nurses making a difference for victims of sexual assault in Northeast Indiana.
