About Us

To support survivors of sexual trauma, improve systems response, and create social change to end sexual violence.


STAR® provides supportive services to survivors to reduce their experience of trauma. Our advocacy, counseling and legal services are available to youth and adult survivors of sexual violence at no cost, and are intended to assist you at any stage of your healing.

Our staff creates a safe, supportive, confidential environment where survivors are welcomed and supported. At STAR®, we believe that every survivor has the right to services, regardless of their background, gender, race, ethnicity, ability, gender identity, sexual orientation, or decision to report. You are eligible for services no matter how much time has passed since the assault.

Why Work For Us?: 

We are committed to:

  • Addressing sexual violence as a public health problem, not simply a concern of an individual who experiences sexual trauma
  • Challenging attitudes, beliefs and behaviors within our culture that normalize, excuse, condone and perpetuate violence and oppression
  • Preventing sexual violence through a multi-level approach including primary prevention, therapeutic intervention and trauma-informed supportive response
  • Protecting survivors’ rights
  • Ensuring that every survivor of sexual violence has the right to confidential and competent services, regardless of their age, background, gender, race, ethnicity, ability, sexual orientation, gender identity or decision to report
  • Increasing survivors’ power and visibility in the community
  • Building community capacity to address sexual violence by creating meaningful partnerships with individuals, organizations and institutions that believe in our mission and want to help us fulfill our vision
  • Revolutionary change to fundamentally transform ourselves, our clients and our communities
