SANE Program



WINDOW is proud to partner with all area hospitals, County Attorney Offices, and Law Enforcement Agencies in Carlton, Kanabec & Pine Counties to offer Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner services to victims of rape.  A SANE (sexual assault nurse examiner) is a registered nurse who has been specially trained to provide comprehensive care to sexual assault patients; who demonstrates competency in conducting for forensic exam; and the ability to testify to the objective facts of the case if occasionally need.

If you are the victim of sexual assault

You do not need to do anything immediately.  The most important thing you can do is get to safety.  You can call WINDOW 24/7/365 and discuss your options.  In Carlton County call (218)499-8088.  In Kanabec or Pine County call (320)384-7113  Whether you have a sexual assault exam or not, it is always a good idea to see a medical professional within a few days to access medical care as well as be tested and treated for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) or prevent a pregnancy.

Always remember…it does not matter if you were drinking or under the influence of drugs.  You will not be judged.  If you are a minor, you will not be arrested or cited.  It also does not matter what you were wearing, who you were with, or what you were doing.  Sexual assault is NEVER the fault of the victim.
