COVID-19 Note

If you were recently sexually assaulted Palm Beach County Victim Services & Certified Rape Crisis Center can provide support to you.

If you do not need to go to the hospital and are seeking a rape kit, for forensic evidence collection please give us a call.

To avoid possible COVID-19 exposure we want victims to avoid unnecessary trips to the hospital. Sexual Assault services provided by PBCVS are free and in a confidential and private setting.

To reach an advocate at any time, call the PBCVS Helpline at (561) 833-7273 for information, options, and support.

The ER should be used if you have injuries that would require immediate medical care and attention.

Quick reminder during Coravirus pandemy, victims of sexual assault don't need to go to a hospital  

 

Are you or someone you care about a victim/survivor of violence and being impacted by COVID-19?

We want you to know that you are not alone. PBCVS is still here for you and so are many other local resources across our County.
