Since 1974, Grady’s Rape Crisis Center has been helping men and women affected by sexual violence. Our mission is to serve patients of sexual assault. Our focus during the visit is on empowering survivors and providing growth opportunities. Our current core services include a 24-hours crisis line, counseling (individual and group), education, consultation, community awareness/education, medical accompaniment, information, and referral. At the Grady Rape Crisis Center, we are committed to ending the community’s violence cycle by focusing on trauma-informed patient interactions.
Presently we are located inside Grady Memorial Hospital. Our targeted population includes all victims of sexual assault irrespective of race, gender identity, disability, and legal hold status. As a hospital-based program, we also have the unique opportunity to recognize and help victims of human trafficking and domestic violence.
Grady Rape Crisis Center’s goal is to continue increasing awareness of interpersonal violence, encouraging survivors’ support, and preventing sex crimes in our community.
