The Rape Victim Advocacy Program (RVAP) is a sexual assault victim advocate and prevention education agency at the University of Iowa that has also hosted the Iowa Sexual Abuse Hotline (ISAH) since 1999. The oldest stand-alone comprehensive sexual assault program in Iowa, and among the oldest nationally, RVAP serves anyone who has been impacted by sexual violence—survivors and/or their loved ones in the following eastern Iowa counties: Cedar, Des Moines, Henry, Iowa, Johnson, Lee, Washington, and Van Buren. This includes but is not limited to individuals of any age, gender, identity, culture, etc.

Our mission is to provide free, confidential, trauma-informed advocacy to all affected by sexual violence and promote social change through prevention education. With state and federal funding on the decline, now more than ever we are relying on private donations to continue our services.
