Sexual Assault Services in Gallup

Since February 2014, Sexual Assault Services of Northwest New Mexico in Farmington opened an office in Gallup to help community members in McKinley County and the Navajo Nation Chapter Houses in our area respond to, and overcome, sexual assault situations. We respond to all sexual assaults at the hospitals and clinics in our area. Our advocates provide CRISIS advocacy and support. We have a therapist that provides counseling. The Gallup Staff works within our community to provide education, prevention and information presentations dealing with sexual assault for all age groups.

The staff will be with you during your course of the recovery process, from the time of the examination to prosecution of the offender who assaulted. Everything that we do is confidential and is based on what you want. We will support you through that process. If you have been a victim of a sexual assault recently or in the past, we can assist you with what you may need. If you want to know more about our services, contact us and speak to one of our staff members.

COUNSELING

SASNWNM-Gallup Office is offers free counseling services to victims/survivors of sexual assault and abuse. Regardless of when in the victims/survivors lifetime the sexual assault occurred, they qualify for free counseling services.

Racheal Killgore, LPCC is an independently licensed mental health counselor. She provides individual counseling to victims/survivors of sexual abuse/assault (SA). Prior to working at SASNWNM-Gallup, she worked over 5 ½ years for a non-profit domestic violence agency as a therapist seeing victims/survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault for counseling.

OUTREACH

VOLUNTEER ADVOCACY

We are looking for volunteers in the Gallup area to respond to survivors sexual assault at our hospitals or clinics. If you have the time and are dedicated in helping a survivor of sexual assault achieve justice and healing, please contact Gwen Teengar, Advocate Coordinator for Gallup at 505-906-8687 or fax 505-488-2482 or email gwent@sasnwnm.org.

*****There are two things that we would like to see either on our page or on the Home Page. Under one of the categories place information where advocates can access additional education articles and other information by way of a password and with your approval, we could post additional articles from time to time.

Another idea is to have somewhere a link to the State and Navajo Nation Sexual Offender Registries.
