About VerityCommitted to our community.
Who We Serve
Verity serves people of all backgrounds who have been affected by sexual violence. We serve survivors of sexual assault, whether the assault happened today or 50 years ago. We serve survivors, their family members, and their support systems. We serve families, couples, individuals, friends, and more. Sexual violence affects whole networks of people.
Our services are provided regardless of the perceived severity of their assault. All sexual assault is violence. We have staff and resources to help everyone, so please do not refrain from reaching out just because you think another survivor may have it worse than you.
Verity works with clients of all genders, races, sexual orientations, abilities, socioeconomic levels, ages, incomes, nationalities, immigration statuses, ethnicities, neurotypes, and gender expressions. Your identity is not a barrier to accessing our services or other agencies we work with.
We serve all residents of Sonoma County, regardless of where you were assaulted. We also serve anyone who was assaulted in Sonoma County. Even if you have no relation to Sonoma County, we will do our best to refer you to the appropriate rape crisis center or another resource in a different area of the state, country, or world.
Residents of Petaluma can come to speak with an advocate at our Santa Rosa office, our office at the Family Justice Center, or the Petaluma Police Department. Residents of all other cities and towns should come to our Santa Rosa office or the Family Justice Center.
Therapy services are currently offered at our Santa Rosa office and the Family Justice Center.
Anyone can always call our Crisis Line at (707) 545-7273 at any time, day or night. We always have at least two people able to take your calls. No problem is too big or too small to speak with an advocate about over the phone, and you can remain anonymous if you need to.
Come listen, learn, and laugh with us at one of our upcoming events. We offer classes, workshops, seminars, and more.
We strongly believe that sexual assault community education is key to eliminating sexual violence from our lives.
Due to Covid-19, we are working remotely and in-office at all locations on a staggered schedule. Please be certain to call in advanced before making plans to visit our physical locations, either at the FJC or on Steele Lane. We are still operating within our normal business hours. Please keep this in mind when contacting us, as we may not be immediately available via our office numbers, but will get your call soon. Our crisis line is fully operational so if you have an emergency, please call our crisis line.
If you have an immediate crisis, please call our rape crisis intervention hotline at (707) 545-7273 or call 911 for emergency services.
For all other inquiries about Verity, including the services we provide, upcoming events, or volunteer opportunities, please call (707) 545-7270 or fill out the contact form on this page. We will reply within two business days.
