Who We Are and What We Do

The West Virginia Foundation for Rape Information and Services (WVFRIS) is West Virginia's state sexual assault coalition. WVFRIS was established in 1982 and is comprised of the State's rape crisis centers. WVFRIS works with the rape crisis centers and other allied professionals to develop and strengthen intervention and prevention programs in the State that address sexual violence and stalking.


Note that WVFRIS also addresses the issues of human trafficking and dating violence because they often involve sexual violence and stalking. WVFRIS encourages and supports related State and local efforts to respond to and eliminate these forms of violence in partnership with other allied organizations.


Our Vision

  • Eliminate sexual violence and stalking; and
  • Alleviate the suffering of those who have been victimized.


Our Mission

  • Promote the compassionate and just treatment of survivors and their loved ones;
  • Foster collaborative relationships to promote victim healing and justice and prevent sexual violence and stalking; and
  • Create attitudinal and behavioral changes around sexual violence and stalking through education, victim services and social change efforts.


This website is designed to provide information and resources to victims and those professionals seeking information to better serve them, as well as those interested in preventing sexual violence, human trafficking and stalking.
