The Dallas Area Rape Crisis Center (DARCC) provides a comprehensive and compassionate response to individuals impacted by sexual violence through advocacy, education, and prevention.
DARCC provides survivors of all genders and their loved ones the resources they need to reclaim their lives. DARCC staff and trained advocates are available to help those impacted by sexual violence navigate the journey of healing in a safe and confidential environment.
DARCC's comprehensive program includes counseling, crisis intervention and advocacy for those whose lives have been affected by sexual violence. DARCC is also committed to social change through the implementation of prevention, education and outreach program to the community. DARCC acknowledges that different experiences can impact survivors and their loved ones in a variety of ways and works to provide the best level of care and support. The organization focuses on meeting the unique needs of all populations including LBGT, the disabled and the elderly.
Volunteers are a vital part of DARCC allowing the organization to provide much needed services to the community. We have many opportunities for volunteers, including working as Crisis Hotline advocates, Hospital Accompaniment Advocates (both require mandatory training, provided at no cost by DARCC), and assisting with fundraising and community education. We also have internship opportunities available for interested undergraduate and graduate students.
