Additionally, OCRCC offers educational programs for raising awareness about sexual violence and teaching prevention skills. Many of our services and programs are also offered in Spanish. 

Our Services

24 Hour Helplines

Our Helplines operate 24 hours a day, every day of the year. Trained staff and volunteers provide support for primary and secondary survivors of sexual violence.

Support Groups

Support groups offer a safe space to talk to people with similar experiences. Our groups give survivors the opportunity to learn from one another and to support each other.

Therapy

Free, short-term therapy is offered in English and Spanish. We also provide clinical case management, connecting you with a therapist that can meet your needs.

Advocacy

We are here to help support you through your individual healing journey. We offer accompaniment to appointments, assistance with filing police reports and 50C protective orders, and more.

Education + Outreach

We offer prevention programs in elementary through high schools as well as professional trainings and community presentations to spread awareness and empower our community through education.
