Porchlight Counseling Services exists to help college sexual assault survivors achieve healing and wholeness and to create a world in which a person's life is not defined by the devastating experience of sexual assault.

We provide counseling, advocacy, and other services to college students, regardless of gender, who were sexually assaulted during college. We also provide services to adults who are no longer in college but who were assaulted while they were in college or graduate school.

Our goal is to provide high-quality, long-term counseling and services at no charge to the client. We aim to provide those services quickly in order to help the sexual assault survivor heal and get on with life.

If you or someone you know is in need of services or would simply like to talk about what happened, please call 773-750-7077.
