About Our Staff

Our staff reflects the community we serve and has a strong commitment to making our mission a reality in Northwest Arkansas. With tireless passion, our staff never stops working to build awareness and empower bystanders to intervene in messages and actions that blame victims and support perpetrators. We envision a society where all survivors will be supported and all perpetrators will be held accountable. With patient empathy, our staff provides comprehensive services to all survivors of sexual assault regardless of the survivor's race, sex, ethnicity, national origin, age, disability, religion, socioeconomic status, immigration status, sexual orientation or gender identity or expression. We provide compassionate, confidential services to every survivor whether or not they choose to report to law enforcement.
