About SARC

The Sexual Assault Resource Center (SARC) was founded in Washington County in 1977 and is one of two community-based advocacy nonprofits in Oregon focused solely on providing free and confidential services to people who are, or may be, affected by sexual violence. Services include a 24-hour support line, 24/7 in person and over-the-phone crisis intervention, individual counseling, support groups and community education. 

SARC recognizes that sexual assault can and does happen to anyone. Members of historically marginalized communities are more likely to be affected by sexual violence and more likely to experience barriers to accessing services and seeking justice. SARC strives to be culturally responsive and to be intentional in our efforts to support communities disproportionately impacted by sexual violence. We also understand that identities are intersectional, and oppressions are interlinked. In order to more fully serve those who have experienced sexual violence, we as an agency recognize that we must also work to address, challenge, and resist other forms of violence and oppression.
