Every 98 seconds someone in the U.S. is sexually assaulted.



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.

What We Do


The Grateful Garment Project provides victims of sexual violence the clothing and other resources they need to reclaim their dignity and begin the healing process.   We work with hospitals, shelters, law enforcement and other nonprofits to meet victims’ immediate needs after a crisis, and support their ongoing needs along their road to recovery

  • Resource Closets for hospitals and rape facilities
  • Resources for safe house and shelters for trafficking victims and sexually exploited children
  • Emergency backpacks for Law Enforcement for human trafficking victims and children
  • Gift cards for youth to encourage follow up appointments
  • Gift cards for clients to purchase clothing for court appearance
  • Improve substandard service provider facilities

Together, with your help,

we can provide victims with the resources necessary to take the first step on the road to healing.

We provide resources to

25-40 victims

(women, children and men)

in California each day
