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.
