Even if an Orange County rape crisis center is forced to shut down in a month, victims of sex crimes will still have a local organization to turn to for support and counseling, officials with the Community Services Program said Friday. The Community Services Program, based in Irvine, runs a 24-hour rape hot line, and it expects to pick up many of the 300 to 500 calls per month now received by the Orange County Sexual Assault Network, program representatives said.

More than 100 trained, volunteer counselors provide anonymous, round-the-clock counseling to victims.

Many Southeast Asian refugees suffered extensive sexual abuse while fleeing their homelands, but few have received counseling or treatment since resettling in the state, social service officials say. The need for counseling might be especially acute in Orange County, which has one of the largest Vietnamese populations in the state and boasts growing Cambodian and Laotian refugee communities.

Rep. Robert Dornan's (R-Garden Grove) column, "Growing Plague of Sexual Assaults," (Oct. 11) fails to provide the Orange County community with accurate information regarding the availability of services to victims of rape and sexual assault. The only rape crisis center in Orange County did not close as stated by Rep. Dornan. Only the Orange County Sexual Assault Network closed. Established in 1981, Community Service Programs' Sexual Assault Victim Services is now the only rape crisis center in Orange County committed to serve a community of 2.4 million people.

The crisis and sexual assault program of the Laguna Beach Community Clinic has discontinued its hot line. The hot line, which cost $60,000 a year to maintain, was closed because the center has had to support the line on its own since it lost state funding two years ago, according to Bill Plumb, who works with the clinic's program development department. Since the county has two other similar hot lines, the loss of the program would have the least impact on the community, Plumb said.

Orange County's only rape crisis center and hot line plans to shut down July 1 due to lack of funds, leaving sexual assault victims with no local network to call for 24-hour-a-day counseling and advice. The Orange County Sexual Assault Network needs about $60,000 to operate its phones and office for the next year and without it will close in a month, said founder Linda Yuppa.

The Orange County Sexual Assault Network, which has operated from supporters' homes for the last four years, Thursday formally opened an office at 1107 Chapman Ave. as the first step in plans which envision a shelter for rape victims.

A speakers bureau is also available and volunteers will accompany victims to hospital and court appearances.
