Supporting Survivors: How local partnerships are making a difference



In 2023 the Ascension Wisconsin Mobile Sexual Assault Treatment Center cared for more than 500 patients. Every patient is a survivor, enduring the unthinkable and working to start the path to healing. 


All survivors have resources available to them through the Mobile Sexual Assault Treatment Center whether it be new clothing, a phone, emergency housing, health care services, over-the-counter medications, assistance with legal paperwork or a safe ride home.


Much of this support is made possible through donor support to Ascension Wisconsin Foundation and the help of community organizations. This Sexual Assault Awareness Month, we would like to take a moment and recognize our community partners that make this care possible:
