24-Hour Sexual Assault Hotline: The VSC operates a 24 hour a day, 7 day a week Sexual Assault Hotline. Our hotline is for anyone seeking immediate telephone crisis intervention services or information on sexual assault. Our hotline is operated by certified Sexual Assault Counselors. Certified Sexual Assault Counselors are trained to provide immediate crisis intervention and ongoing support.
Acute Sexual Assault Services (within 120 hours following the sexual assault): The VSC operates the only certified rape crisis centers in Orange County and Osceola County, Florida. Services include providing immediate support and advocacy to both reporting and nonreporting victims of sexual assault. Services can include forensic evidence collection by a SANE (Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner) that occurs in our private facility which offers a calming home-like environment. A certified Victim Advocate is available to accompany the victim during the exam, and all information provided to the advocate is considered confidential per F.S. 90.5035. Services can be received regardless of whether a victim reports the crime to law enforcement.
Non-Acute Sexual Assault Services: The VSC offers case management and crisis counseling services outside of the initial 120 hours to include adults who were victims of childhood sexual abuse or incest.
