Crisis and Advocacy Services Provides Additional Sexual Assault Exam Site
Planned Parenthood North Central States and Polk County Crisis and Advocacy Services have partnered to provide survivors of sexual assault with an alternative exam site during the COVID-19 pandemic. Planned Parenthood North Central States has increased the availability of the Rosenfield Center for acute sexual assault exams to increase options for survivors outside of emergency rooms. The Mid-Iowa Sexual Assault Response Team has seen a decrease in the number of sexual assault responses since the COVID-19 pandemic started.
Survivors of sexual assault can access services by calling (515) 286-3600. A certified advocate will be able to provide information, support and options. The Rosenfield Center is located at 1000 E Army Post Road in Des Moines.
For more information, please contact Polk County Crisis & Advocacy Services at (515) 286-3600.
