Sexual Assault Services Annual Recognition Dinner

Sexual Assault Services Support

Sexual Assault Services is celebrating 25 years of service to individuals and families in Calhoun, Kalamazoo and Van Buren counties. Please join us in recognizing our community members and volunteers for their commitment and service to sexual assault survivors.

This year, for safety reasons due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be hosting our annual dinner. Sexual Assault Services will host a separate virtual recognition to recognize their volunteers and awardees.

Sexual Assault Services depends on local, state and federal grants as well as community donations through Bronson Health Foundation provide services free of charge to survivors and their family members. We believe survivors of sexual assault, and those who care about them, deserve the best possible assistance for healing and empowerment. Together, we must work to achieve a community free of sexual assault. Please consider supporting this important work with a gift.

Make A Gift
