What's in a PACK

Project PACK creates Post-Assault Comfort Kits for survivors of sexual assault. Our PACKs are given to survivors during the evidence collection process at the hospital or Children’s Advocacy Center.

There are currently 2 types of PACKs:  Adult/Adolescent & Pediatric

Adult/Adolescent PACK

PACKs are designed with comfort in mind. As the evidence collection process which follows a sexual assault may take up to six hours to process, they are filled with items to allow the recipient to take control back over their body. These items include simple cosmetics, cleansing wipes, a toothbrush and toothpaste, as well as clothing such as underwear which are often taken into evidence.

Further, the PACKs are aimed first and foremost at sexual assault survivors, and inclusivity is valued at Project PACK. As such, the PACKs themselves are gender neutral in nature, with clothing items (underwear, etc.) tailored to recipients preferences.
