Sexual Assault Assistance (S.A.N.E.)

Locally reported cases of sexual assault overwhelmingly involve children under the age of 18. In 2012, six victims of sexual assault/domestic violence were treated by Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (S.A.N.E.).

How does this program help?
Our S.A.N.E. nurses testify in court cases. During on these cases, a 13-year-old was sexually assaulted by her father; the S.A.N.E. nurse was on the stand for more than an hour, and the father was incarcerated. Had it not been for this nurse receiving training in forensic sciences at a conference in Dallas, the perpetrator would have been released back into our community – possibly repeating the crime or victimizing another young girl.
How is it funded?
Support is needed to keep the S.A.N.E. program running. Donations help recruit and provide training for new S.A.N.E. nurses, purchase necessary equipment and supplies and assist in efforts to educate the community about sexual assault and prevention.
