Our mission is to promote social justice by eliminating sexual violence in our community through education, support and advocacy.
Bottom Line for Portland
We continue to offer all our services even though we’re working remotely due to the COVID-19 quarantine. So far in 2020, we’ve responded to 642 in-person and telephone crisis calls (an increase of 11% over the same period in 2019), facilitated 65 support groups, provided over 1,000 hours of follow-up services and individual counseling! We are also providing clients who have been financially impacted by the COVID-19 quarantine with housing assistance, and so far this year, we have paid over $32,000 in rental assistance to help our clients maintain safe housing!

“SARC was there for me when I needed compassionate guidance after a major, life-changing assault. I felt empowered and my life is positively impacted by their caring team. They believed me and gave me the strength to reclaim my life.” —S, 2018 case management client
