Mission Statement

To empower individuals impacted by sexual harm and engage communities to end sexual violence.

What We Do

The Northwest Center Against Sexual Assault (NWCASA) is committed to empowering Survivors and ending sexual violence. Our free services include: individual, family, and group counseling for Survivors and their loved ones; medical advocacy at hospital emergency rooms; legal advocacy at local police departments and courthouses; crisis intervention telephone hotline; and professional training, sexual abuse prevention education, and community activism. Medical advocacy and crisis hotline are available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, and many services offered are available in both English and Spanish.

NWCASA is a governing body member of the Illinois Coalition Against Sexual Assault.
