The Orange County Rape Crisis Center serves over 600 survivors of sexual violence each year with free and confidential crisis services. We also reach over 12,000 youth and adults each year with child abuse prevention and rape prevention education. We could not do this work without your help!

As a non-profit supporting public health and public safety across Orange County, we receive funding from state and federal government grants. But as public funding continues to shrink, we need more help than ever from private supporters. Your dedication to providing support, education, and advocacy against sexual violence has moved our mission forward. We continue to expand in order to better serve our community, and your gift will sustain our growth, providing help, hope, and healing to those who need it in Orange County and beyond.
