NJCASA’s Sexual Violence Programs are located in each county in New Jersey and at the Office for Violence Prevention and Victim Assistance at Rutgers University. Each program provides a variety of services to survivors of sexual violence and their loved ones. The New Jersey Coalition Against Sexual Assault (NJCASA) is the statewide advocacy and capacity building organization that represents the twenty-one county-based rape crisis centers, and the Rutgers University Office of Violence Prevention and Victim Assistance. NJCASA elevates the voice of sexual violence survivors and service providers by advocating for survivor-centered legislation, training allied professionals, and supporting statewide prevention strategies that work to address and defy the socio-cultural norms that permit and promote rape culture.
These standards have been developed pursuant to an amendment to a provision of New Jersey Law that ensures the rights of crime victims Evaluation survey forms are provided to every Survivor so that they have the opportunity to provide comments on the services provided and their contact with the criminal justice system, including the opportunity to comment on the health care facility and staff, the rape crisis center, the Survivor witness advocacy services, the police department and the prosecutor's office.
