Kentucky non-profit dedicated to helping victims of sexual abuse, assault

ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (WHAS11) -- It's a topic that's making national headlines -- sexual assault and harassment-- and today t was the focus of a roundtable in Elizabethtown.

Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear joined the staff at Silverleaf Sexual Trauma Recovery Services this afternoon to discuss how to best serve victims of sexual assault through seeking justice and providing assistance. The non-profit organization is dedicated to reducing the trauma experienced by victims of sexual abuse and assault.

"My belief is that the most important person in any crime isn't the perpetrator. They're important and they need to be brought to justice, but it's the victim who needs to be put on the path for healing. And Silverleaf is an amazing facility that does just that," Attorney General Beshear said.

Silverleaf serves eight counties in Kentucky.
