Building an Ethical 2
Building an Ethical Organization: Part Two
According to the U.S. Department of Justice (2009), a sexual assault happens once every
two minutes. When these assaults occur, where do the victims turn for assistance? Currently
there is no central location for these victims and UoP Student is determined to rectify that. On
January 29, 2009 the Coshocton City Council accepted UoP Student’s proposal to equip the
community with a sexual abuse victim’s center. This organization will reside at 338 Pier Street
and will house a variety of services that victims of sexual assault can benefit from. The SAVES
building, which stands for Sexual Assault Victim’s Educational Safe Haven, will be open 365
days a year, 24 hours a day to meet the needs of the community. The building will be operated by
a non-profit victim’s advocacy organization of the same name and will offer counseling,
educational programs, legal advice and much more. By housing many services in one building, it
is UoP Student’s goal that victims will get the care they need and not fall between the cracks.
About the Organization
SAVES was founded in 2008 by UoP Student, who herself was a victim of sexual assault.
UoP Student was unable to locate services that would help her through the frightening and
overwhelming process of dealing with her assault: filing a report against her attacker, wading
through the red tape that is the justice system, and locating a counselor or support group to help
her deal with her emotions. UoP Student is not alone, according to Campbell (2008):
“Rape victims encounter significant difficulties obtaining help from the legal,
medical, and mental health systems, and what help they do receive can leave them
feeling blamed, doubted, and re-victimized. As a result, survivors' post-rape
distress may be due not only to the rape itself but also to how they are treated by
social systems after the assault.” (para. 40)
