We hope you and your loved ones never experience sexual abuse or assault. Yet it is a life experience for 1 in 6 males, 1 in 4 females and half of all transgender people. And most of these crimes (over two-thirds) go unreported to police. Mosaic Georgia is working to change all these facts.
Mosaic Georgia provides free, confidential support to victims/survivors of sexual assault, child sexual abuse, and commercial sexual exploitation. We help survivors put the pieces back together after they disclose sexual abuse/assault. We have a mosaic of services to promote the safety, health and justice (healing) needs over time. All acute services are provided in the safety and privacy of our center in Duluth, Georgia. Our primary service areas are Gwinnett and Rockdale counties.
As a Children’s Advocacy Center, agency responses are centralized to reduce the inconvenience and trauma of going to various institutions (e.g., hospital, police station) after an assault/abuse is disclosed. By creating a calm, welcoming, healing environment, Mosaic Georgia is the first place to sit and exhale safely after disclosing abuse/assault. We work with a multi-disciplinary team comprised of law enforcement, Department of Family & Children’s Services, schools, mental healthcare, public health and other services as needed.
"I really appreciate what you all do and I was very happy with the environment and that both of my kids came out just feeling really encouraged and like they got a load off their back. And the way that you all talked to them made them feel very comfortable. Oh, and the lady that brought them snacks and sodas, it made it feel not so stressful and it was just a good experience. Thank you!"
For adults who are reluctant to report a recent assault to police, Mosaic Georgia can listen, explain options, and offer medical exams and evidence collection that can later be turned over to law enforcement if the victim decides to report the assault. 25% of these clients decide to report the crime within 6 months of disclosing to us.
“I didn’t think anyone would believe me and I blamed myself. [The advocate] listened to me and explained my options for reporting. She also helped me figure out how to tell my partner what happened.”
Mosaic Georgia strengthens the community response to sexualized violence. From individual case review to professional education, we encourage courageous conversations about prevention, safety, health and justice.
Mosaic Georgia is the only center in the United States that provides all these services. In addition to the 24/7 crisis line (866-900-6019), we offer:
All services are free to clients. No fees. No co-pays.
“You people are a real blessing to me and my kids. Since we couldn’t stay in our home, your team helped me get resettled and I don’t have to explain what happened over and over. Finally, my daughter can sleep through the night again. Thank you!”
Each year, we assist over 2,000 victims/survivors and their families.
Last year, we served 1,139 new victims of sexual assault/abuse. Two-thirds are minors. 31% are under 12 years old.
An additional 1,000 victims who experienced assault in prior years and needed support either for criminal proceedings or other issues challenging their safety and health were assisted.
All are welcome.
