On behalf of our event Co-Chairs Lauren Pesa and Jamie Davis, we invite you to join us for Resilience’s Evening of Impact on Thursday, September 22 from 6:00 to 9:30 p.m. at Galleria Marchetti. Our theme this year, Resilient Together, honors our community, partners, and supporters who are dedicated to the healing and empowerment of sexual assault survivors.
Registration is now open!
It’s the Resilience volunteers who make all the difference in our work to end sexual violence and help every victim become a survivor. Join us in our stand against sexual violence! Click below for more information.
Resilience Can Help
Even amid increased efforts to prevent further spread of COVID-19, we continue to be available to survivors. Please call us at 312-443-9603 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will follow up with you in 1 to 3 business days.
We can help you with questions about seeking medical treatment in the ER after a sexual assault, filing an emergency order of protection, making a police report, seeking ongoing medical treatment, and understanding all of your rights and options. All of our services are free and confidential.
Regardless of when and where a survivor’s journey begins—in the ER following an assault, or through a phone call for help to make sense of something that happened 20 years ago—Resilience is here every step of the way.
Through our trauma therapy program, medical advocacy, legal advocacy, and Resilience Training Institute, Resilience is here to help survivors during their time of need.

Myths & Facts
Did you know that a great deal of harm is done, often unintentionally, to survivors because the people around them believe the myths that surround rape and sexual violence?
Professional Training Resources
Research shows providers’ responses can be critical in shaping the course of healing for survivors. Via its trainings and the Resilience Training Institute, Resilience provides resources and tools to professionals to improve the care of sexual assault survivors.
Resilience is an Illinois not-for-profit organization made up of many individuals with two primary goals: to assure that survivors of sexual assault are treated
with dignity and compassion; and to effect changes in the way the legal system, medical institutions and society as a whole respond to survivors.
