BARCC provides free, confidential support and services to survivors of sexual violence ages 12 and up and their families and friends. We work with survivors of all genders regardless of when the violence occurred, whether it was 20 minutes ago or 20 years ago. Our goal is to empower survivors to heal and seek justice in ways that are meaningful to them. We meet the needs of survivors in crisis and long after, and we assist survivors as they navigate the health-care, criminal justice, social service, and school systems.
BARCC is powered by roughly 50 staff and over 250 volunteers. BARCC’s vision is to end sexual violence through healing and social change. When you become a BARCC volunteer, you take an active role in helping us to deliver on that promise. Our diverse group of volunteers comes from all age groups, levels of experience, and walks of life. But they share our commitment to supporting survivors, empowering communities, and ending sexual violence.
