Rape Recovery Program

The YCC has a team of trained advocates that can offer support and services for victims in English and Spanish.

What to do if you are raped:

  • If you are in immediate danger, call 911.
  • Contact the YCC crisis line: 801-391-7273.
  • To preserve evidence do not bathe, shower, or clean yourself or the crime scene.

In addition to immediate help for victims of sexual assault, YCC is dedicated to educating young men and women about dating violence, date rape, and rape prevention.

The Rape Recovery program at YCC offers crisis counseling, therapy, advocacy through the court system, and emotional support for clients as they work towards recovery, as well as information and referrals to other programs that can be of assistance. The Rape Recovery program can also assist in safety planning.

The Rape Recovery program is able to assist victims of rape and sexual assault with Crime Victims Reparations – funds to help cover costs resulting from the crime, such as therapy, mental health and medical costs, replacement of items destroyed in the crime, and relocation if needed.

The Rape Education program helps teens make safe and educated decisions about dating and relationships. Presentations are offered on relationships, sexual harassment, dating violence, and rape. These can be tailored in length and content to meet the needs of your group.

For more information, please call (801) 689-1737.
