Who We Are
What We Do

Capital Region Safer Bars is a part of a larger initiative across New York State that focuses on working with bars and restaurants to end sexual aggression and violence and to promote a safe and healthy nightlife experience.  Albany and Schenectady County have partnered together to lead this initiative in the Capital Region. By working together with bars and restaurants across the region, we intend to create a nightlife community and culture that is safe, inclusive, and welcoming for all community members by empowering bar owners, managers, and staff to recognize, intervene, and prevent sexual violence.

Survivor Support Service's  mission is to empower individuals, families, and our communities impacted by crime through compassionate and confidential victim centered care. 

Survivor Support Services provides free and confidential services for victims and survivors of sexual assault and sexual violence. We also provide services to friends and family affected by the sexual assault or acts of sexual violence against their loved ones. Free services are also provided for innocent victims of all other crimes. 

Survivor Support Services maintains a 24-hour sexual violence hotline for past and present survivors of sexual assault and violence. Staff and trained volunteers are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to answer questions, provide crisis and supportive counseling, offer community referrals, and accompany individuals to local emergency and/or police departments. We can give you support at the hospital, police station, throughout police and court.
