roject Sister Family Services is the foremost agency dedicated to providing services to the women, children, and men survivors of sexual assault and abuse and their families in the East San Gabriel and Inland Valleys in Southern California, a region with a population of over 2.3 million persons. Project Sister Family Services works with local law enforcement, district attorneys, courts, hospital and health care providers, schools, churches and other community groups and agencies.
Project Sister Family Services aggressively pursues a two-pronged approach to addressing the problem of sexual assault and child abuse: providing services to those in crisis with extensive follow-up treatment, and specific sexual assault outreach and prevention education programs. Our mission is to reduce the trauma and risk of sexual violence and child abuse. By alleviating the devastating aftereffects of sexual violence and child abuse, Project Sister Family Services helps to end the cycle of family violence that can occur throughout generations by helping survivors to heal. Project Sister Family Services’ prevention education programs empower people of all ages to avoid dangerous situations in hopes of their never having to experience the trauma of sexual assault.
