The Sexual Assault Victim Advocate (SAVA) Center’s mission is to provide crisis intervention, advocacy and counseling for all those affected by sexual violence and provide prevention programs through community outreach and education. We envision a culture change that results in the end of sexual violence. SAVA began as a rape crisis hotline in 1976 under the Larimer Center for Mental Health and, in 2003, became an independent nonprofit agency. In October 2010, SAVA expanded its services to include neighboring Weld County. SAVA now serves as the only rape crisis center in Larimer and Weld Counties dedicated exclusively to serving the needs of sexual assault survivors. Each year, SAVA provides confidential support to over 600 victims of sexual assault and provides education to over 1,000 community members and 4,000 students. SAVA is a member of Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN), the Colorado Organization of Victim’s Assistance (COVA), and the Colorado Coalition Against Sexual Assault (CCASA).
The SAVA Center is dedicated to ensuring that both internal operations and service delivery are administered on a non-discriminatory basis. It is our policy to maintain a non-discriminatory environment, free from intimidation, harassment, or bias based upon gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, race, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, class, or disability, without regard to race, color, gender, religion, national rights, age, disability, or sexual orientation.
