Sexual Assault Resources

It's not your fault. We are here to support you.

To talk to someone, call our Helpline: 406-752-7273

The Abbie Shelter provides care and services for people who have experienced sexual assault. Here are several resources to help you find support or information. We hope it helps you feel less alone.

Almost all sexual assaults (95%!) are committed by someone you already know, like a current partner, ex-partner, family member, or friend. If you didn’t consent, it’s not okay. We are here to support you in your healing.
