Aurora Healing & Advocacy Services is dedicated to making life better for survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence. As one of only a few treatment programs in the country that's part of a health system, Aurora Health Care helps survivors get more of the services they need from a single source. Emergency medical care and advocacy services are offered to victims of sexual assault at Aurora Sinai Medical Center, Aurora West Allis Medical Center and the Sojourner Family Peace Center. Compassionate, long-term counseling is provided at Aurora Healing Center on Bruce Street.

One particular initiative, the "Safe Mom Safe Baby" program, supports pregnant women and new moms whose lives have been affected by domestic violence. Services are also provided by forensic nurse examiners at Aurora hospitals in Oshkosh, Elkhorn, Hartford, Burlington, Sheboygan, Kenosha and Manitowoc. Providers work together to help provide the individualized care and services they need to feel whole again. More than 2,000 people who experienced sexual and domestic violence were cared for at an Aurora Health Care facility in 2017.
