What is SART?

SART is a multidisciplinary, interagency, sexual assault intervention model. It is a victim centered team approach to implementing a comprehensive, sensitive, coordinated system of intervention and care for sexual assault victims.


The mission of the Lower Elwha SART is to consistently contribute to our tribal community’s reputation as a safe place to live, work, play, learn and visit.

We are here to help support and offer strength to victims of sexual assault.

We will strive to build trust with, listen to, and advocate for victims.

We will encourage collaboration and communication amongst agencies working together to assist in navigating an individualized path to justice and healing.

Victim Centered

The systematic focus on the needs and concerns of a sexual assault victim to ensure the compassionate and sensitive delivery of services in a nonjudgmental manner.

Your SART is here for YOU. We work in conjunction with other advocacy programs in our service area. Weare tribal-oriented but serve all of Clallam County. If you are in need of services, please do not hesitate to contact us.

The SART Program is located at the Lower Elwha Health Clinic. The SART Program provides Client centered care. We see pediatric sexual assault victims from the age of 18 and under. We do forensic exams and medical exams at the lower Elwha Heath clinic and our mobile unit. We provide advocacy, prevention, outreach and legal advocacy.

Iliana has twenty (20) years of advocacy working with diverse populations and is bilingual, Spanish and English. She’s began her employment with LEKT in the Healthy Transitions Program, providing advocacy to youth and young adults (16–24-year-olds) who were in need of mental health services and life skills. During her employment with LEKT she has also provided support and emergency coverage to the Lower Elwha Family Advocacy Program, as a DV/SA Advocate. Prior to working for LEKT Iliana worked for Healthy Families of Clallam County for 6 years, as a Lead Advocate for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.
