Nationally, someone is sexually assaulted every 92 seconds. More than 5,800 people who experienced sexual and domestic violence received care from Aurora Health Care in 2018. And we know that immediate care isn’t the end of their healing journey – it is often only the beginning. That’s why we make healing happen for survivors of abuse from the point of crisis through lifelong recovery.

Standing with Survivors is our month-long campaign during Sexual Assault Awareness Month. From forensic nurses to healing services and survivor advocacy, your support benefits Aurora’s Abuse Response programs, including Aurora Healing & Advocacy Services in Milwaukee.
