The Mountain West SANE Alliance program provides assault victims trauma informed, compassionate, culturally sensitive, and comprehensive forensic evaluation and treatment by trained, professional nurse experts.


In 2012, the Roaring Fork Valley lost its SANE (Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner) program, leaving the community vulnerable and victims of sexual assault having to travel to Grand Junction or Frisco to receive services. In 2016, a small group of dedicated professionals came together to reinstate the services that assault victims in our community require, forming Mountain West SANE Alliance (MWSA). On January 1, 2018, MWSA program, including the financials, administration and program management moved under the umbrella of the established RBRC agency.
