STAR, a program of Lighthouse Counseling Center, Inc, provides forensic exams, counseling, prevention education and a 24 hour crisis hotline free of charge, to sexual assault victims, their families and the communities of Autauga, Elmore, Lowndes, Montgomery, Butler and Crenshaw counties. The goal of the STAR program is to promote healing for those who have been traumatized by sexual assault whether they are the victim, a significant other or family members.
STAR provides counseling for individuals and groups, forensic medical exams performed by specially trained SANEs (sexual assault nurse examiners), prevention education services, law enforcement advocacy and accompaniment, a crisis hotline, victim assistance, and transportation for services provided at the center. STAR operates as a “stand-alone facility” where all of these services are provided in a completely confidential and private location.
All services are provided at no charge to victims through funding from grants administered by ADECA’s LETS/LEPA division (“Victims of Crime Act” and “Violence Against Women”) and by public support and donations.
