To preserve the privacy of those who come to SARA, we do not list our membership on the website. However, if you want to talk to a SARA outside of the hours given on our home page, look for the SARA t-shirts which all of our trained personnel receive. SARA's are always willing to answer questions about sexual assault, so feel free to ask for information or to set up an appointment if you see someone wearing the shirt.
