Sexual violence can happen to anyone, anywhere at any time.
The Assault Survivor Kit program was created to help meet some of the immediate needs of individuals victimized by this crime. The kits provide new, seasonally appropriate clothing, underwear and personal hygiene products giving victims comfort and dignity. The victim’s own clothing is taken by authorities as evidence. Over 350 Assault Survivor Kits will reach sexual assault victims this year.
Susan Allred, an attorney with the Utah State Office of Legislative Research and General Counsel and recipient of the Consociates 2016 Woman of Distinction Award wrote, "I work in the area of criminal law, including assault. Much effort is made to strengthen laws and prosecute offenders. And much work has been done over the years to improve support for victims. But the immediate and basic need for the physical, and emotional, kindness of fresh clothing is not generally recognized, but means so much to the victim."
