Welcome to AWARE

AWARE Can Help

We are here to help you. If you’ve come to our website, perhaps you or someone you know needs help. Maybe you’ve just been raped, maybe you were attacked or assaulted, maybe you’ve had an abusive partner, or maybe something happened a while back that you are just now ready to confront. No matter how scared, hurt, angry, humiliated, or desperate you may feel right now, you need to know that this is not your fault.You did not ask to be abused. You did not ask to be assaulted or attacked. No one asks for this, and no one deserves to be treated this way.

Despite the confusing emotions you may be experiencing, there is one thing you can be sure of – there are people here to empower you. AWARE is here to help you heal. You have just taken the first, and possibly the hardest, step; you’ve turned to somebody for help. We can provide you with free assistance, counseling, and support, and empower you to begin living a violence-free life.
