Welcome to MESA:

Moving to End Sexual Assault (MESA) is a program of Mental Health Partners serving the Colorado counties of Boulder and Broomfield.

MESA’s mission is to end the suffering in our community caused by sexual assault. We believe every person has the right to live free of sexual assault. Through our client services we are here to help sexual assault survivors and their loved ones today. Through our prevention education programs we are working toward changing tomorrow to ensure a world free of sexual violence.

Since 1972, MESA has and continues to be the only rape crisis center serving Boulder and Broomfield counties. Annually, MESA serves over 1,200 victims of sexual assault, and provides education to over 3,200 community members and students. MESA is a member of Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN), the Colorado Organization of Victim’s Assistance (COVA), and the Colorado Coalition Against Sexual Assault (CCASA).

Annually we have provided prevention education to 2500 middle/high school students and 704 non-student professional and non-student community participants.
