Vision:

Our vision is a community where all people feel safe and are free from sexual abuse and assault.

Mission:
The mission of the PEI Rape and Sexual Assault Centre is to support survivors of sexual assault and abuse in their healing and to ensure that all people living in PEI are safe from sexual violence. In achieving this mission we work collaboratively with, and in ways that empower, individuals and organizations.

We believe that:
  • Prevention of sexual abuse is everyone's responsibility. The community has a responsibility to support survivors in their healing and to work towards ending sexual violence.
  • Sexual assault and sexual abuse are crimes that involve control and power.
  • Survivors have the right to receive the support they need to heal from abuse.
  • The trauma of sexual assault and childhood sexual abuse can severely impact the quality of life for
    survivors.
  • Ensuring confidentiality and respecting the choices of survivors are top priorities.
  • Healing that results in long term enhanced quality of life takes time.
  • The impacts of sexual assault and childhood abuse permeate all of society.
  • All survivors deserve access to services.
  • Sexual violence will continue until the root causes of violence against women and children are addressed.
  • Working collaboratively with the community is essential to address the needs of survivors.

How are we Funded?
We are a non-profit organization that receives funding from the PEI Provincial Government. We also depend on donations from organizations and individuals and through special fundraising efforts to help cover all of our operating expenses. 

Our Commitment to Privacy and Confidentiality
Our commitment to privacy and confidentiality is a key cornerstone to the PEI Rape & Sexual Assault Center and we deem to be a crucial component to our therapeutic relationships with our clients. We never disclose who is on our wait list or obtaining our services. We never release confidential information about our clients without their written informed consent.
We're looking for new Board members
If you are interested in helping the Centre in its mission to support survivors of sexual assault and abuse,  and to work towards eliminating sexual violence in our community, call Sigrid Rolfe at 902-566-1864.

Wait List
We currently have a wait list for counselling sessions addressing historical sexual abuse and/or past sexual assault. If you have experienced a sexual assault recently, however, you will not have to wait, and we will see you as soon as possible. 

The length of the wait list varies, and it is not possible to predict accurately how long the wait might be. We know it takes courage to ask for help, and it can feel discouraging to be asked to wait. While waiting, we encourage anyone seeking more immediate support to check out other resources that might be available, such as an E.A.P. or personal benefit program.
