RESILIENCE Mission

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.
