Columbus sexual assault center calls on help from the government to recover from fire

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - In Columbus, the Sexual Assault Support Center continues to operate out of office after their building was destroyed by a fire.

The center and its volunteers are responsible for helping local rape and sexual assault victims on their road to recovery.

The assault center on 21st Street was damaged in a fire back in March which left organizers unable to work out of the building.

Organizers say, since the fire, the team has been working out of a room at Piedmont Medical Center, making it hard to see survivors and hold support groups.

They are now calling on the city government to authorize funding to help them find a better space to work out of.
