April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and the North County Rape Crisis Center is asking for your support to help keep its doors open. The center has offices in Santa Maria and Lompoc, where they help more than 15,000 people each year, offering free support, education, and prevention services.
KSBY spoke with two sexual assault survivors with said they would have nowhere to turn if the center closed its doors.
About half its funding comes from government agencies and the other half comes from community support. This year, the non-profit is anticipating a 10 to 20 cut in government funding and hopes the community can step in with the extra cash.
Hear more from the sexual assualt survivors tonight on KSBY News 5 and 6.
