Around 1 in 5 women and 1 in 16 men are targets of attempted or completed sexual assault while they are college students.

About 85% of sexual assault crimes are committed by someone the victim knows– an acquaintance, friend, friend of a friend, dating or intimate partner.

Sexual assault is NEVER the victim’s fault. Sexual assault is caused by a perpetrator who chooses to harm another person.

Anyone can be sexually assaulted. Perpetrators target adults, teens and children of all ages regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation.

Michigan's Sexual Assault Hotline

If you or a loved one has experienced a sexual assault, you may want to talk with someone. Michigan's Sexual Assault Hotline has trained advocates available to listen without judgment and offer support to you 24/7.

The hotline is confidential. This means that we will not share your information. It is also anonymous. You don't have to share your name or personal information. The information that you do share with us, stays with us.

If your experience of sexual violence was 4 hours ago or 40 years ago, we are available to listen to you. We offer immediate crisis counseling and referrals to local service providers - regardless of your identity.
