WASAFE is managed by the Harborview Abuse & Trauma Center, a program of UW Medicine and the University of Washington. It was created in 2017 as a resource for medical providers and victims of sexual assault.

The Harborview Abuse & Trauma Center was founded in 1973 as one of the first programs in the country to respond to the needs of sexual assault victims. The Harborview Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) program was developed in 2000. It serves six hospitals in King County, supports tele-consulting to providers at eleven rural hospitals across Washington, and offers free SANE training to providers in every corner of the state.
