About Signs of HOPE

Our History

Signs of HOPE was originally founded in 1974 as the Community Action Against Rape (CAAR) by Las Vegas locals, Florence McClure and Sandra Petta. McClure and Petta were outraged by the lack of resources and respect for survivors of sexual assault and their loved ones.

 

Mrs. McClure originally ran SOH out of her home, with the goal of helping those in Clark County heal from the trauma of sexual violence and human trafficking. Her dedication and vision continue to inspire us today. Signs of HOPE’s purpose is to ensure that victims of sexual assault and human trafficking have the support and resources they need to move through the process of healing.
