“Today marks the beginning of a new era in our efforts to serve sexual assault survivors across the state,” Turner C. Bitton, the coalition’s executive director, said in a statement. “This mobile application is the culmination of decades of innovation aimed at reducing the isolation that many survivors feel after an assault.”
The app’s features include:
• Resources for survivors, such as reporting options, understanding trauma, legal options and the rights of victims.
• Resources for friends and family, such as understanding what is happening, supporting your loved one, reporting options and responding to child sexual abuse.
According to the coalition, additional resources and information will added to the app regularly.
