Founded in 1981, NJCASA’s mission is to promote the compassionate and just treatment of survivors and their loved ones, foster collaborative relationships between community systems, and affect attitudinal and behavioral changes in society as we work towards the elimination of sexual violence against all people. We represent the state’s recognized 21 county-based sexual violence service organizations and the Office of Violence Prevention and Victim Assistance at Rutgers University. Our comprehensive approach includes elevating the voice of survivors and service providers, advocating for survivor-centered legislation, training allied professionals, and supporting statewide prevention strategies that work to defy the socio-cultural norms that permit and promote rape culture. We are the only New Jersey organization dedicated exclusively to working with issues of sexual violence and to supporting the county-based organizations that provide essential services to survivors and their loved ones.
