Verity facilitates healing and promotes the prevention of violence by providing counseling, advocacy, intervention, and education, in our communities.
Recognizing sexual assault as a societal issue drives us to care for everyone who is affected by these heinous crimes. By working with families, friends and significant others of survivors, we are able to support all individuals caught in this trauma.
Verity's Prevention Education Department aims to increase our community’s awareness of sexual assault, sexual harassment, and child abuse prevention and intervention strategies through classroom and community presentations. Education is key to eliminating sexual violence from our community. All presentations are tailored to each individual group, available in English and Spanish, and free of charge.
Verity has been presenting CAPP (Child Abuse Prevention Project) in our classrooms since 1980 and TAPP (Teen Assault Prevention Project) since 1985. Verity’s Prevention Department focuses on education to youth and outreach to the community. Programs and curricula are tailored for elementary, middle, and high school audiences, school personnel, and parents.
24 hours of the day, 365 days of the year, our Crisis Line is staffed by trained, compassionate, California State Certified Sexual Assault Victim Counselors for confidential counseling, emergency assistance, information and referrals. Crisis intervention is provided to anyone affected by sexual assault – survivors and their family and friends.
If you are in need of immediate attention, call us at (707) 545-7273. Counselors are standing by.
