Confidential help is available. 24/7. At no cost. Whenever and wherever you need it.
For over 40 years, The Rowan Center’s hotline has been the first step toward recovery for thousands of victims of sexual assault in lower Fairfield County. We also have a hotline dedicated to those who speak Spanish. Our state-certified Sexual Assault Crisis Advocates complete a 40-hour, intensive training program, helping them to listen, empower and connect callers to the resources they need.
Our staff and trained volunteers are available to meet clients at hospitals and police stations to provide support and aid in the evidence collection process. We are also available to support and accompany clients through the court process and judicial proceedings.
“The Rowan Center provides highly sensitive, expert and compassionate care to our hospital’s most vulnerable patients.
They partner with our emergency department’s physicians and nurses in providing acute care to patients who have been victimized
by sexual assault. Working together we are able to help patients begin the long and complex process of healing.”
