To promote social justice by ending sexual violence through advocacy, education and support.
Bottom Line for Portland
SARC operates 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. Last year, SARC responded to more than 2,500 crisis calls; provided case management support and counseling services to 450 survivors, including commercially exploited youth; held support groups for survivors and their loved ones; and taught prevention courses to more than 1,200 students.
“SARC’s prevention and education program has been influential in educating myself and other youth on not just what types of sexual assault and abuse exist in our world, but how they manifest and the influences of society on people.” —Abby Knott, Roosevelt High School student
