Verity is Sonoma County’s sole rape crisis center and is dedicated to serving those who have been victimized by rape & sexual violence. We also have an ongoing community education program. Since 1974, Verity has operated the county’s only 24/7-rape crisis hotline, staffed by state certified rape crisis counselors providing immediate responses to victim needs.
An all-volunteer Board of Directors governs Verity. The agency works closely with law enforcement, hospital personnel, and all other agencies serving victims of crime. Verity provides immediate crisis intervention, medical support, accompaniment during investigation and trial, advocacy, and counseling.
Verity provides prevention education workshops to over 5000 Sonoma County youth ages 5 -19 annually and educates teachers, parents, coaches, and other groups in preventing sexual assault and related trauma. Verity is a 501(c)3 non-profit agency relying solely on grants and donations.
