Stuart House, a program of the Rape Treatment Center, is internationally recognized as a model for the treatment of sexually abused children. It was established in 1988 to remedy serious problems in the traditional child protection system and to enhance the treatment of child victims.
As the need for Stuart House services increased, The Rape Foundation raised funds to support the design and construction of a new, larger facility for the Stuart House program at UCLA Santa Monica Medical Center to expand its capacity to serve a larger number of child victims and their families. The building was completed and donated to the University of California in 2016 to be used for the Stuart House program. All Stuart House services are provided free of charge to the children and families served.
