Central Minnesota Sexual Assault Center (CMSAC)




Mission: To provide a safe, trauma-informed environment for all ages and genders within our diverse community to heal from their trauma and to impact change in society’s attitudes and institutions that will reduce and ultimately eradicate the incidence of sexual violence.

Philosophy:

· All individuals have the right to accept or refuse sexual contact at their discretion; and no one deserves to be sexually assaulted.

· Members of each sex have equal ability to control their sexual behavior and are ultimately responsible for their own actions.

· Sexual assault is a violent crime and is often premeditated.

· Each victim of sexual assault is a separate person, having distinct and separate needs, and should be treated so.

· Society’s institutions are responsible for: treating victims of sexual abuse adequately and with respect and dignity; responding to sexual violence; protecting and educating communities; and for the treating of offenders.

· Each victim of sexual assault is entitled to confidential help and non-judgmental, non-blaming support.

What sets you apart from others?

We strive to eradicate and educate surrounding sexual violence. We are one of very few centers in the country who uses what crime we serve in our name. i.e. Central MN Sexual Assault Center. This increases our awareness and calls from all over the country. Also, we do provide services to a wide area of Central MN: Sherburne, Benton, Stearns, and Wright counties.
