INTERNITY: 619-1413
A non-profit group connecting veterans who are survivors of sexual assault or other trauma with PTSD resources.  Programs offered:

  • Operation 22: a program designed to fill the gap between hotline assistance and the medical / psychological help that the veterans may or may not have access to.
  • Pets 4 Vets: a program through INTERNITY which will match rescue dogs with veterans
  • SASA: Sexual Assault Survivor Advocates.  Advocates are recruited and trained to work with survivors as they experience difficulties and barriers in their communities.   They work side by side with veterans as they match resources to needs, and help veterans gain their voices again
  • SAFR: Sexual Assault First Responders. Many times, survivors wait years to get help. Our board and team at INTERNITY know the proper processes and connections to get help – even if it is years after the assault.
