Sexual Assault is any type of sexual contact in which a person is tricked, lured, bribed, or forced into without his/her consent. Victims are of any age, sex, race, and social class. It is NOT victim provoked or related to "uncontrollable passion". Sexual violence is primarily about aggression, power, and control. It is most often a felony crime and punishable by prison.

As we recognize April as Sexual Assault Awareness Month, we are also celebrating the 30 years of incorporated advocacy services provided by the Sexual Assault Program with Northern St. Louis County community members.
To celebrate, honor and support on-going free advocacy services and prevention education, we will be hosting a Spaghetti Feed/Gift Basket Raffle. This community event will take place on Thursday, April 17, 2014, at the Mt. Iron Community Center.
The mission of the Sexual Assault Program of Northern St. Louis County is to provide services to primary and secondary victims, with the ultimate purpose of preventing sexual violence.
