Project Sister Family Services:
Project Sister serves eastern Los Angeles County and provides crisis and intervention services pertaining to sexual assault, intimate partner violence and child abuse.
Project Sister’s 24/7 Sexual Assault Crisis Hotline can be reached at (909) 626-HELP. Survivors can receive immediate, confidential assistance from trained volunteer advocates.
Volunteer Advocates are available to provide support and follow-up services to sexually assaulted or abused survivors at the hospital, police station and court appearances.
Advocates also provide information about reporting an assault and give referrals to other available services in the community.
Therapists provide professional counseling to survivors and their non-offending family members at any point after a sexual assault or child abuse event. The first ten counseling sessions are free with proof of household income, and fees for subsequent sessions are determined on a generous sliding scale based on household size and income.
Project Sister also offers specialized support groups both for survivors and for non-offending family members.
Project Sister can also be contacted at (909) 623-1619 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
