Foothills Alliance is Becoming First Light 

For over 30 years, it has been Foothills Alliance’s privilege to educate, advocate for, and heal survivors of sexual assault and child abuse in Anderson and Oconee Counties. Now, they hope you will join them in celebrating as Foothills Alliance becomes First Light: A 24/7 Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Resource Center.

Their services will not change or be interrupted, and all of their services will continue to be provided at no cost to their clients. This change was official as of February 27, 2023. 

The name First Light is meant to remind the community of the soothing feelings associated with the dawning of a new day. Regardless of the specific nature of a client’s previous experiences, the agency’s goal is that one’s first encounter with them marks the beginning of a new chapter of hope and healing in one’s life.

First Light’s new identifier shares three important pieces of information about the agency. First, they are available to help any time, day or night. Second, they serve those affected by sexual assault or child abuse. And third, First Light is a real place where our community can expect to find helpful resources in a time of need.

As advocates for those who have been victims of sexual assault and child abuse, it is important to raise awareness and be a resource to those who need it. With a new name and identity, it is a new day for First Light. They are eager to continue educating, advocating, and healing in our community.
