Mission Statement

At The Blue Bench, our mission is to eliminate sexual assault and diminish the impact it has on individuals, their loved ones and our community through comprehensive issue advocacy, prevention and care.

Organization History

The Blue Bench was established in 1983 when a close friend of the three founders was raped. In the process of trying to find help for their friend, the three women learned that there was no agency providing low-cost services or immediate crisis intervention services for victims of sexual assault in Denver. The three women, experienced in grassroots fundraising, organized a door-to-door canvass to raise money and started Denver's first rape crisis center.


Our hope is to one day live in a world where sexual assault no longer exists. Where there are no more victims, families and friends suffering in it's wake. This is our hope. This is what motivates our efforts. And until that day comes, our work is not complete.
