To promote social justice by eliminating sexual violence through education, support and advocacy.
Bottom Line for Portland
SARC operates 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. Last year, SARC responded to more than 1,500 crisis calls; provided case-management support and counseling services to more than 550 survivors, including commercially exploited youth; and taught prevention courses to more than 700 students.
"The amount of love and support the women at SARC provide to those who are hurting is invaluable.… I’m healing, slowly, because they really care about me…about a person they don’t know…. They’re helping me heal, so I can learn to love myself enough to create the life I’ve only dreamed of."
