We are: Sexual Assault Prevention & Response Services (SAPARS) of Western, Maine, USA.
About us: With a combined history of over 90 years, the rape-crisis centers serving Androscoggin (formerly SACC), Franklin (formerly SAVES), and Oxford (formerly REACH) counties have worked for change by educating our communities and supporting victim-survivors of rape, child sexual abuse, and other forms of sexual violence.
In October of 2011, these three agencies joined forces and merged into one agency: SAPARS, which covers all three counties. Looking toward our future together, we are excited about being an even stronger agency for positive change!
Mission statement: Sexual Assault Prevention & Response Services works to prevent and eliminate sexual violence and promote healing and empowerment for people of all genders and ages who are affected by rape, sexual assault, child sexual abuse, sexual exploitation, stalking and sexual harassment.
We listen. We believe. We care.
Thank you, for your support!
