SAAVE is committed to:


  • Supporting and empowering victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, intimate-partner violence, harassment, stalking and traumas through free, confidential advocacy and counseling.

  • Collaborating with local service providers to develop and strengthen services for victims.

  • Engaging in violence-prevention education and outreach to eradicate victimization and assist community and healthcare providers in identifying and responding to victims to enhance the healing process and prevent re-victimization.

The support of the lower Hudson Valley is critical as SAAVE assists victims.
