Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Prevention Program

Important Safety Information: For victims of abuse using a computer at home, or where an abuser has access to it, can be very dangerous.  It is impossible to erase all computer history.  Additionally, spyware can be installed onto your computer without your knowledge and give the abuser ways to track and monitor your computer activity. We highly recommend that you use a computer that you know is “safe,” and to which the abuser does not have access.  You can go to a trusted friend’s home, a public library, or a rape crisis or domestic violence program in your community.
