The Cleveland Rape Crisis Center recently opened a new office in Westlake, one of 11 satellite offices in Greater Cleveland. The new office at 27887 Clemens Road will serve rape and sexual abuse survivors in western Cuyahoga County. They offer a variety of counseling services for adults, children and entire families.

“Survivors of rape and sexual abuse live in every community in Northeast Ohio, and with the opening of the new westside office, our goal is to help survivors in western Cuyahoga County access our premier services close to home,” said Sondra Miller, President and CEO of Cleveland Rape Crisis Center. "Many of our clients come to us months, years, or even decades later. We want all survivors to know: You are not alone, and you can recover and lead a healthy and happy life."

Members of Westlake City Council, the West Shore Chamber of Commerce and the community celebrated their opening with a ribbon cutting presentation and a grand opening party.  You can speak with a Cleveland Rape Crisis Center advocate anytime day or night for free, confidential support and information by calling 440-423-2020.
