12/24 Caring & Sharing: PAVSA spearheads community's work

Dec 24, 2015

PAVSA's not going it alone any more.

Candy Harshner, the executive director of the Program for Aid to Victims of Sexual Assault, says she knew that for sure this week.

A patrol officer told her that he knows, now, when he meets someone who's been sexually assaulted, the first thing he says to that person will either help them begin their healing journey or make it make it worse for them.

KUMD's Caring & Sharing holiday series continues with a look at PAVSA, a non-profit working to eliminate sexual violence in Southern St. Louis County, support victims, educate the community and advocate for change.
