The Sexual Assault Response Center's mission is to provide crisis services, support, and advocacy to victims of all non-domestic violence crimes, non-offending family members and others who are impacted by crime. We strive to create and maintain a community without violence through prevention-based education and community development initiatives.
The Sexual Assault Response Center (SARC) views sexual assault as a means of power, control, and manipulation. Sexual violence adversely affects all members of a community, including both adults and children.
SARC supports the rights of sexual assault victims and strives to see these rights upheld. SARC believes that every victim deserves quality information, advocacy, crisis intervention, and treatment. We support the right of a victim to make choices about reporting, prosecution, pregnancy, future safety, and other issues raised by the experience. It is our responsibility to provide prevention education in an effort to create a community free of violence.
SARC is committed to serving all individuals, regardless of race, gender, religion, age, ethnic background, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, marital status, physical or mental status. SARC recognizes the importance of combating racism, homophobia, able-bodyism, and other issues of oppression in order to make services accessible to all indiviudals.
