Zacharias Sexual Abuse Center

Zacharias Center provides quality, comprehensive, client-centered services to survivors of sexual assault and abuse. The agency’s services are free and available to all survivors regardless of race, gender, language, ability, sexual orientation, or religion. They include counseling, which provides therapy in individual and group settings; advocacy, which provides staff, who are available 24 hours a day, to answer a support line, meet victims in the local police stations and emergency rooms, or attend local trial proceedings; and prevention education, which reaches into the community to provide safety education workshops to students and adults. HPCF’s grant supports Zacharias Center’s ability to provide all of these services for Highland Park and Highwood survivors of sexual abuse and assault.
