*We are what is called mandated reporters. That means we have to follow Maine state reporting laws. If we think you are under 18 and you tell us any information that makes us think you are being abused or neglected, we may have to share this with other adults to help keep you safe. We will never ask you for identifying information. You can share what you feel comfortable share.

Do not blame yourself. Sexual assault is never the victim’s fault.
Find a safe place and call a person you trust. It can be a good friend or family member.
