We understand it can be difficult to talk about sexual assault, and SARC advocates are here to meet you wherever you are in your healing process.
Our 24-hour free and anonymous support line is available to anyone affected by sexual violence, regardless of gender identity, sex, race, ability, age, religion, immigration status, national origin, or sexual orientation. For anyone who is confused, uncertain, in crisis, needs resources, or simply wants someone to listen and talk to, our services are available.
Our advocates can respond in-person to survivors age 15+ who live in or who experienced sexual violence in Washington County.
SARC’s services are also available to the following groups:
PREA (Prison Rape Elimination Act) Survivors
Under PREA, incarcerated survivors in Washington County are able to access SARC’s 24-hour support line and receive in-person advocacy when they present at a hospital to receive medical attention following a sexual assault. SARC has resources to provide ongoing support to survivors who are incarcerated.
Friends, Family, and Loved Ones
The violence of sexual violence can affect friends, family, and loved ones as well as survivors. Our advocates are trained to offer support to friends, family members, and loved ones, so they can gather information, get support themselves, or learn skills to support the ones they love.
