Date Rape Statistics that will Shock you!

Posted in Clients and Needs, statistics tagged , , , at 5:43 pm by Every Cent Counts

It is easy to overlook date rape when researching sexual assault. However, the number of young adults and teens, alone,  that experience date rape would shock you. 1 in 5 high school females experiences physical or sexual abuse by the person they are dating. 70% of sexual assaults reported by adolescents and college age females were with someone that they were dating. 38% of those same reports came from teens age 14 to 17. These numbers are horrific. I hope they serve as a reminder that the majority of rapes occur from people that are trusted.

We, at the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay, help victims of sexual assault overcome stigma and obstacles that they may face while recovering. Often those clients have small, short-term needs that are forwarded to Every Cent Counts for assistance from the community. Visit our website to view our needs, and donate to a good cause today!
