Our programs:

SARAH Program (Sexual Assault Recovery and Healing)

Survivor’s Hope Crisis Centre supports survivors of sexual violence. We also support family members, loved ones and friends of sexual assault survivors. Persons needing support are encouraged to call (204) 753-5353 during office hours for information on sexual assault trauma. 24 hour sexual assault support is available at 1-888-292-7565 (Klinic Sexual Assault Crisis Program – Winnipeg). The SARAH Program provides sexual assault crisis intervention services, hospital accompaniment and support, follow-up support, and referrals to regional services. The SARAH program is currently operating out of hospitals in Selkirk, Pinawa, Beausejour and Pine Falls.

SADI Program

The SADI Program involves the development and delivery of educational workshops for youth. Our workshops are designed to address the root causes of sexual violence and relationship violence. We focus on providing youth in grades 6 to 12 with information to encourage healthy choices and healthy relationships.

Reaching Out Program

The Reaching Out Program bridges the SARAH and SADI Programs in our communities. It provides community members and service providers with information to build and maintain healthy relationships while creating a supportive environment for those dealing with abuse.

Volunteer opportunities:

The SARAH volunteer’s role is to provide emotional support to sexual assault survivors and their loved ones at hospital, detachment or one of our offices following a sexual assault. The SARAH Worker acts as support for the survivors when dealing with medical staff and police. Workers are scheduled on call one weekend every 6 to 8 weeks and contacted by cellphone.

Our volunteers have varied life, education and work experiences but all see the value of supporting victims of sexual violence. If you live or work in eastern Manitoba and are interested in a volunteer position as a SARAH Sexual Assault Crisis Intervention Worker please call 1-204-753-5353, email director@survivors-hope.ca , or drop into our Pinawa office at Lewis Business Centre (Mon to Thurs) for more information on the application process and training sessions.

We also have a variety of volunteer opportunities with the Board. Directors attend Board business meetings every two months, with optional educational meetings alternating months. There are also short term tasks and projects that require helping hands. If a Board commitment doesn’t fit your schedule perhaps working on a committee will meet your needs. Those interested in learning more about a Director position or short term committee opportunities can call 1-204-753-5353 or email director@survivors-hope.ca .
