When sexual assault victims seek medical attention and rape kits are performed, those women, men and children are asked to surrender their clothing for DNA evidence. Once clothing has been surrendered, the traumatized victim has nothing else to wear home but a hospital gown…only adding insult to injury. Together, with your help, we can provide victims with the resources necessary to take the first step on the road to healing.
The Grateful Garment Project (TGGP) is proud to provide new clothing, food, grooming supplies and other vital resources to Sexual Assault Service Providers throughout the State of California. We partner with agencies on the frontline to maintain clothing closets in their facilities. In this way, resources are immediately available when a survivor of sexual violence needs a fresh change of clothes and the sense that people care.
