Get Involved

We are here for you. Please reach out if you need support.

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 info@ourresilience.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.

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.
