Our mission is to promote social justice by eliminating sexual violence in our community through education, support and advocacy.
Bottom Line for Portland
In 2018, we answered 991 crisis calls, responded to 172 requests for in-person crisis response, and provided long-term case management, counseling, and support groups to 855 clients. Over 85 percent of clients surveyed report feeling safer and experiencing fewer symptoms of traumatization after working with SARC.
Blue Star Donuts will promote our campaign by entering donors into a raffle for a donut party, and Wildfang will give away a Wilde Feminist T-shirt to donors giving $100 or more (T-shirt has $40 value and must be picked up at Wildfang’s West End store by December 31, 2019).
“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
