Who We Are

Mission

The Riverside Area Rape Crisis Center (RARCC) is a non-profit organization committed to providing support and services to survivors of sexual assault and their families and to providing community education to achieve awareness and prevention of sexual assault.

Philosophy

The Riverside Area Rape Crisis Center is based on the belief that each individual has a right to control his or her own body and life, to live free from violence and fear.

The organization supports the survivor’s autonomy in decisions and assists in exploring choices while working through the trauma.

The association believes that through education, the community can become more sensitive, aware, supportive, and accepting of the individual’s right to be safe and in control of his or her own life.

The organization is committed to eliminating exploitation in human relationships, reducing the stigma of victims, and emphasizing the value of each human life.
