The mission of The Grateful Garment Project is to ensure that every victim of a sexual crime who crosses the threshold of a SART facility or who seeks medical attention and/or law enforcement involvement is provided with whatever new clothing, toiletry, snack items and miscellaneous items they may require to reduce any future impact on their being.
The Grateful Garment Project is a non-profit organization whose entire mission is to assist in the process of returning dignity to victims of sexual violence. We accomplish this by providing additional resources and tools to Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) facilities, Community Based Organizations (CBO), hospitals and medical facilities, and law enforcement and social agencies. These resources could be as simple as a pairs of socks for a victim, or as technical as implements utilized in the SART exam process. Our scope is wide but our purpose is narrow: To reduce any further negative impact on victims of sexual assault.
