Founded in 1974, Resilience (formerly Rape Victim Advocates) is an independent, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the healing and empowerment of sexual assault survivors through non-judgmental crisis intervention counseling, individual and group trauma therapy, and medical and legal advocacy in the greater Chicago metropolitan area. All trauma therapy services at Resilience are free, confidential, and are offered to survivors and their non-offending loved ones. Services are provided by licensed therapists or interns pursuing graduate level degrees in counseling, psychology, or social work. We additionally offer STI and HIV testing and pregnancy support.
