Rape Survivor Counseling Services

COMPASS counseling services are available at no cost to all survivors of sexual violence – women, children, men, and their families – including recent victims, adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse or parents of a survivor.



We offer professional short-term counseling, advocacy in police interviews and court proceedings, referrals to community resources, community education and access to a 24-hour hotline at 330-782-3936.

Access our services at the courthouse and hospital, as well as our office located at 535 Marmion Ave. in Youngstown.


Community Education and Awareness

We offer community education and prevention programs to hundreds of children, adolescents, and adults each year. Our goals are to stop sexual violence before it happens, reduce the stigma associated with these crimes, and expand the community’s understanding of these issues.


Support Group

A support group is offered twice a month for survivors/co-survivors of sexual assault and trauma.  To see the meeting schedule please click here or call 330-782-5664.

Our advocates are here to listen without judgement and help you begin to address what’s going on in your life. Our services are always free and available 24/7.

Every contact to COMPASS Chat is personal. Some people who reach out to us identify as survivors of abuse or violence, some as concerned friends or family members, some as abusive partners seeking to change themselves. Many people may be unsure of what to expect when you contact us. While every contact is unique, our advocates are guided by the COMPASS core values and will emphasize several key points throughout your conversation:  safety, support, and care.
