Partners Against Violence
2022 In Review
Updated: Dec 23, 2022
As we all slowly made our way out of quarantines and lockdowns, this year allowed us to get back to "normal" and reach more Survivors and members of the community, in person. We not only supported Survivors but really focused on educating the community and bringing awareness to important issues. Here's a breakdown of some of our work this year. Please note, reporting reflects FY2022, which runs July 1st through June 30th. Averages include 2020, 2021, and 2022. Events were throughout the 2022 calendar year.
Counseled 1,921 Survivors by listening to their needs, referring to community resources, building coping skills, and more.
We help Survivors all year by answering crisis hotline calls, meeting with Survivors in our offices, and going on outreach calls to hospitals in order to support Survivors during and after sexual assault forensic exams. We also assign specific Advocates to stay with each Survivor throughout any and all processes, like court dates or follow-up appointments.
Everything we do supports our goal of providing a safe place for Survivors to heal and find support. All of our services are available at no cost to Survivors, their significant others, and family members.
Our services are designed to not only alleviate the suffering of Survivors of sexual assault but also to help end sexual violence. They are facilitated by trained trauma-informed professionals.
In the Community
Educated 15,824 people on prevention and recovery through relationships with local high schools, colleges and universities, and communities.
Coffee with a Cop
We partner with the Morongo Basin - San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department and the San Bernardino Department of Behavioral Health to provide support to Survivors in as many ways as we can. This year, we popped by “Coffee with a Cop” at the 29 Palms Starbucks, where several deputies and other support staff mingled with the community.
Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center Sexual Assault Prevention Response (MCCES SAPR) on board the 29 Palms Marine Base hosted their annual Colorful Consent Color Run to bring awareness to Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month. Members of our team participated in this 5k to show our support to this local resource that we partner with to ensure our military members get the services they need.
