The Alliance provides counseling for all survivors of sexual violence, including children ages 3 and up. During the coronavirus pandemic there has been an increase in the number of sexual abuse reports from minors and we anticipate a higher need for advocacy and support services for children. As an umbrella organization for Rape Crisis Programs, we work closely with all New York CIty’s District Attorney’s Offices and New York Police Department Special Victim Divisions. We also partner with the Manhattan Child Advocacy Centers for our Pediatric Sexual Assault Forensic Examiners (SAFE) course (a 40-hour IAFN approved forensic examiner training). In addition, our team of counselors has extensive experience in providing therapy to and advocating on behalf of children. Therefore, between our in-house expertise and our NYC partnerships, the Alliance is perfectly positioned to support any child who may have experienced sexual assault.
Children are amongst the most vulnerable population and that is why we, at the Alliance, are committed to becoming their voice and advocating on their behalf. If you are looking for assistance please contact us at:
