KHEproject

In 2014, Krupa Desai committed to set up a texting hotline to improve access to support for victims of sexual assault in St. Louis, Missouri. She will purchase a phone, set up the software needed to run the support program, and advertise extensively to make this service known. Krupa will recruit and train hotline counselors and partner with Provident, a social-service provider, to follow up with in-person help for the hotline’s users. She will measure her success by tracking the number of victims she can help access assistance from Provident.
