After a sexual assault, many people feel they have lost control of their lives. They may feel that going to the hospital or the police will take even more of their control away.

Beacon Center is proud to be a member of the Watertown Area Sexual Assault Response Team. This specialized group puts survivors’ needs and wishes first. That means that all of us — nurses, advocates and law enforcement — are committed to giving you, your family and friends the help you need to reclaim your life and start healing.

For some people, healing begins by getting compassionate medical care. For others, it means reporting the crime to police. Others may just need someone to talk to in the middle of the night.

Whatever you decide is best for you, we’re here to help.
