Yankton Sexual Assault and Community Response Team
The Yankton Sexual Assault Response Team-Community Response Team, is a victim-sensitive based program designed to provide a team approach to responding to sexual assaults and domestic violence victims within our community. We encompass many disciplines to provide the victim with not only acute care, but with extended services that go beyond the initial report.
The mission of the Yankton County SART is to provide an interdisciplinary team response to the offense of domestic violence and sexual assault, which is a crime of violence against a person's body and will. Therefore, provision of services to domestic violence and sexual assault victims will demonstrate the most competent, compassionate and understanding manner possible to support a transition from victim to survivor for every individual whose life is impacted by domestic violence and/or sexual assault.
