Items in the Assault Survivor Kit

Beginning in 1999, Northern Virginia Assistance League provided adult assault victims with kits containing sweat suits, underwear and personal hygiene items in cases where their clothing was confiscated for evidence.  During this time, 1,304 kits have been delivered to the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) Clinic at Inova Fairfax Hospital for Women and Children (now known as the Ewing Forensic Assessment and Consultation Team (FACT) at Inova Fairfax Hospital).  However, this program was ended in 2015-2016 due to changes in the process for obtaining evidence which dramatically reduced the need for the Assault Survivor Kits.
