Who We Are

Mission & History

The NWA Center for Sexual Assault provides a safe haven of healing and hope to adult survivors of sexual violence or harassment, and their loved ones, while tirelessly works toward a safer future for all through education and awareness.

We envision a world free of sexual assault. Until then, we want a world where every survivor is believed and every perpetrator is held accountable. 

Founded as NWA Rape Crisis, through its mission-driven work, our Center has offered free comprehensive support to adult survivors of sexual assault since 1982.  For over 35 years we have continued to actively counter a culture that condones sexual violence as we work to address the individual and community hurt caused by those who perpetrate. We want every survivor to know YOU ARE NOT ALONE—we are here for you.

We work diligently every day to create a culture that supports survivors of rape and sexual assault.

PLEASE HELP US CREATE A CULTURE IN NORTHWEST ARKANSAS THAT SUPPORTS SURVIVORS!
