Mission Statement

DVC Mission Statement: The mission of the Domestic Violence Center is to provide shelter, crisis intervention, and supportive services for survivors of domestic and sexual abuse and their families, with a commitment to safety, respect and promoting self-determination.

Description

The Sexual Assault Resource Center, or SARC, is a program with the Domestic Violence Center. SARC provides free and confidential services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to victims of sexual assault and their families.
