Mission & vision

The mission of Never Stand Alone (NSA) is to provide support to victims of sexual assault with an emphasis on Plain (Anabaptist/Amish/Mennonite) communities, in which women and children experience alarming rates of sexual abuse.

Never Stand Alone stands with people affected by sexual violence, without regard to age; gender or gender identity; national origin or ethnicity; political affiliation; race, religion or creed; sexual orientation; immigration status; mental, physical or developmental disability. Our mission is to make sure all victims have access to advocacy & support in & out of the courtrooms.

“No one should ever have to stand alone in a courtroom, surrounded by strangers, facing their perpetrator.  Traumatic events bring victims of sexual crimes to the court room. The process is intimidating and one of the reasons so many choose to remain silent. To find the strength to come forward takes grit, determination, and courage.

Together we are better.”

-Joanna Yoder, Founder of NSA
