COVID19 Emerging Response Resources

Since information and guidance continue to change and evolve, OAESV created this COVID-19 (coronavirus) resource page to share information relevant to providing sexual assault advocacy, working with funders, and getting support during this time.

OAESV is committed to finding answers to your questions and providing support.  Many of the resources shared here were developed by peer sexual assault or dual coalitions, or local programs in Ohio and may be adapted to your needs.

Who We Help

The Ohio Alliance to End Sexual Violence serves as Ohio’s rape crisis coalition. State sexual assault coalitions serve as the main training and technical assistance provider for rape crisis centers on best practices in programming and administration, and they advocate on behalf of rape crisis centers and the survivors they serve in public policy advocacy efforts at the state and federal levels. State coalitions also lead statewide public awareness efforts, and support local rape crisis centers in engaging with diverse communities, survivors, and service providers in their service areas.

What We Do

At OAESV we provide many services, including training for advocates and preventionists, technical assistance for local programs, systems advocacy, public policy work and much more.
