LACASA offers afternoon of self-care to support assault survivors

LACASA Center invites the community to show support for sexual assault victims and survivors by attending “Journey to Healing: An Afternoon of Self-Care” on Saturday, May 6, from 12-3 p.m. at Bock’s Big Acre in Pinckney.

Event attendees can visit self-care booths, indulge in pampering sessions, view gardening demonstrations, and enjoy light refreshments and snacks. This free awareness event is open to all and a children’s play area will be provided featuring creative activities for youngsters.

“It is important for our community to let victims and survivors know that we believe them and support them,” said LACASA’s Sexual Assault Team Manager Sherry Boroto. “By attending this event and joining together in a show of support, we help victims and survivors overcome shame and self-blame and gain a sense of empowerment.”

“Journey to Healing is designed to convey the importance of self-care for people recovering from trauma,” Boroto said. “We also utilize this opportunity to raise awareness about the free programs and services LACASA offers for sexual assault victims, their families, and their friends.”

LACASA provides comprehensive, wrap-around services under one roof for victims and survivors of child abuse, domestic violence and sexual violence. The agency’s Sexual Assault Response Center offers confidential forensic exams in a private setting, which are conducted by specially-trained Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners. In addition, victims and survivors have access to emergency shelter, counseling, legal advocacy, and critical support programs.  

For information about LACASA’s sexual assault awareness programs or events, visit lacasacenter.org, or call Sherry Boroto at 517-548-1350.
