Assault Survivors Kits® program provides personal kits for children and adult survivors of abuse, sexual assault, and domestic violence whose clothing was destroyed by the perpetrator or retained by police for evidence. The Assault Survivor Kits include a new top, pants, underwear, socks/flip-flops, sports bra, bar of soap, toothpaste, toothbrush, comb, shampoo, and a stuffed animal for children. Assistance League's members purchase items, assemble, and deliver the kits to trauma centers.
Since 1994, 16,435 kits delivered. In 2016-17 FY, 1,261 kits were delivered to 46 hospitals and trauma centers, hoping to assure them that someone cares.

The annual Assault Survivor Kits Committee meeting on Wednesday, May 25, 2016 welcomed 3 new members to our dedicated group of women. We celebrated distribution of 1,177 ASKits this fiscal year, and the addition of six new facilities in locations from here in Rochester, to Escanaba in the UP. Tremendous effort by our liaisons has brought comfort and dignity to victims of rape and domestic abuse throughout the state of Michigan.
In addition to reviewing the Assault Survivor Kits program procedures and responsibilities, our members cheerfully recognized the wonderful work of the Red Nose Charity who support children in need.
