Ariana Grant, Preventist with Riverview Center in Galena, is the PSL guest to bring attention to the fact that April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and that the agency has several associated campaigns and fundraising events that help the center bring hope and healing to those that have suffered this kind of abuse.

An upcoming Fundraiser mentioned during the interview is Evening of Light, an empowering celebration of the resiliency of child, teen, and adult survivors of sexual and domestic violence.  Due to the Covid-19 pandemic it has been transformed from a one-night event into a two-week long virtual event, featuring survivor stories of hope and healing, a showcase of auction items from local businesses, and live interviews with members of our staff and healthcare professionals. Please help then raise critical funds to ensure that survivors of sexual assault/abuse and domestic violence get the help they deserve on their journeys of healing.
