Compassionate. Caring. Ready to Help.
That’s our main purpose at Sara’s Project–to be here to help the families in and around Ardmore with programs that step in and provide them with the services they need during a time of crisis, from child abuse to suicide.
It is our job to rise up and show support for our youth and their families!
Crisis Management Training and Response is a program designed for schools employees, although you do not have to work at a school to take the training. This training provides teachers, counselors, administrators and parents the opportunity to learn about grief and loss, as well as how to respond appropriately in a school setting. It’s taught over one or two days, depending upon your needs.
ASIST and SafeTalk
Imagine a suicide-safer community. That’s our vision with ASIST. This training helps caregivers of all kinds learn suicide intervention. The emphasis of the ASIST workshop is suicide first-aid, helping a person at risk stay safe and seek further help. This two-day, intense training helps individuals recognize red flags and response to invitations for help. SafeTalk provides the confidence to ask about suicide and provides the education to deal with the answers in a 3-hour Suicide Intervention Awareness class.
Sexual Abuse Response Team (SART)
SART is a collaboration between Sara’s Project, Mercy, the Southern Oklahoma Family Shelter, the District Attorney and Law Enforcement to serve both male and female adult victims of sexual assault. Our medical team provides forensic evaluations conducted in a private, confidential setting, with local response coverage 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, and 365 days a year.
Sara’s House, our Child Advocacy Center, provides a safe, child-focused setting for children who have suffered abuse. During the course of a child abuse investigation, children are brought to Sara’s House for forensic interviews, medical evaluation, advocacy and case tracking, all in a single location.
