SARC mission is to end sexual violence through empowerment, education, and healing. We could not serve the community we love without our volunteers. When you become a SARC volunteer, you take an active role in helping us to deliver on that promise. Our diverse group of volunteers comes from all age groups, levels of experience, and walks of life. But they share our commitment to supporting survivors, empowering communities, and ending sexual violence.
Since we opened our doors in 1983, thousands of people have called our 24-hour hotline for crisis services. We have reached hundreds of thousands through our education, outreach and awareness campaigns. SARC supports survivors and their loved ones of sexual violence in our own communities across the Brazos Valley whether the trauma occurred days, weeks, or years ago. We could not do this without your help. As a non-profit organization, SARC relies on the support and generosity of the community in order to provide its free services.
SARC receives hundreds of requests from sexual assault victims each year. Our advocates reply to these needs 24-hours a day, meeting survivors at the hospital to provide resources and emotional support. The Rape Crisis Center also provides survivors with toiletries and new clothes when their own clothing has been collected as forensic evidence.
