this completely anonymous survey so that we can continue to improve survivor response.
Skagit DVSAS does many things to improve how victims are supported in the community. This can look like working to get more forms and documents translated in various languages for victims whose primary language isn’t English, to working on countywide protocols for treating sexual assault victims at local hospitals. Some of the most important systems that SDVSAS strives to improve are those that sexual assault survivors are often routed through, like:
The problem? Survivors who have a negative experience may never receive vital services like advocacy. That means that our agency doesn’t hear those survivor’s stories and does not get the feedback it needs to help fix underlying problems. We cannot improve systems without honest and open communication from the survivors who are served by them.
