In brief: Start with national

You don't say if this is for an adult or a child, which makes a big difference.
You are correct that male child sexual abuse gets less attention than female, though the damage can be just as great. Most urban settings have some sort of sexual abuse hotlines, which might be a good start. Or, go national, e.g., http://naasca.Org/010111-recovery.Htm, and look for someone in your area.
