ALBION – RESTORE Sexual Assault Services, a program of Planned Parenthood of Central and Western New York, has put hundreds of orange flags on the front lawn of the Pullman Memorial Universalist Church in Albion.
The flags are out in April during Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Each of the five counties that RESTORE serves (Monroe, Genesee, Orleans, Wyoming and Livingston) is hosting a display in April emphasizing the role communities play in standing against sexual violence, RESTORE officials said.
The RESTROE hotlines continue to be staffed (585-546-2777 in Monroe County; 1-800-527-1757 in Genesee, Livingston, Orleans & Wyoming counties) for 24 hours a day.
The agency said it also remains in contact with law enforcement, the criminal justice system, and the medical fields to stay current on emerging updates and options for survivors.
Counseling, referrals, and crisis support will continue via communication methods the survivor feels comfortable using, including phone calls, video chats, texting, and emails. For more information, please contact our hotlines or email RESTORE@ppcwny.org.
