Roxcy Bolton Rape Treatment Center Receives Donation for Survivor Kits

09/16/16

The Roxcy Bolton Rape Treatment Center’s mission is to provide confidential, patient-centered, comprehensive care 24-hours a day, 7 days a week to all victims of sexual violence and their non-offending family members. Thanks to the support from Coral Gables Community Foundation, the Roxcy Bolton Rape Treatment Center was given a donation of $2,500 to purchase and assemble 100 Survivor Kits for victims of sexual assault. In many instances, victims who decide to report their assault to law enforcement may have to surrender their clothing for evidence after undergoing a forensic exam. Subsequently, these survivor kits will help provide 100 victims across Miami-Dade County with a sense of comfort at a time of profound pain and distress. Survivor Kits will include a t-shirt, shorts, deodorant, shampoo/body wash, lotion, toothbrush, toothpaste, and hygiene wipes.
