Mission Statement

The Mount Sinai Sexual Assault and Violence Intervention Program (SAVI) mission is three-fold: (1) to meet the needs of sexual assault and domestic violence survivors by offering immediate crisis intervention in hospital emergency rooms, (2) to follow up with counseling and information both for survivors and for their significant others and friends, as well as for those who seek help relating to incidents of rape, sexual assault, incest or domestic violence in the past, and (3) to educate the public and professional communities regarding services and issues surrounding rape, sexual assault and domestic violence. All services and outreach activities are provided in both Manhattan and Queens and are confidential and free of charge and available to all without regard to gender, race, economic status or religious or ethnic group.
