Join us in making a change in our community!
When you join us in this project there will be no meetings or minutes, just a celebration when the total gift is confirmed. With a $100 one-time gift from 100 of us, we have the capacity collectively to make a gift of $10,000 to impact the lives of victims of sexual violence in our community.
Daily we are struggling with the number of men, women and children needing our services in Schuylkill County. Last year over 500 men, women and children sought counseling from us as a result of a sexual assault. Approximately 200 of those victims were children under the age of 18 years old.
What is the safety and well-being of the children in our communities' worth to you?
Did you know that 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be affected by sexual violence by the age of 18? Sadly, the weekly headlines in our communities remind us how vulnerable children and adults can be when they become victims of sexual assault and violence. SARCC opened its doors in 2009 in Schuylkill County. Today we are the only place in Schuylkill County that is exclusively dedicated to providing counseling to child and adult sexual assault victims. SARCC counselors are in the schools educating students from preschool through high school to recognize and prevent sexual assault. SARCC's counselors are specialists and have worked with more than 3000 survivors.
Together, we can change the future for so many victims in Schuylkill County by supporting this project.
Each year the men of Schuylkill County stand up for SARCC at the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event and raise $9000. Help us show that the women of Schuylkill County will also stand strongly against sexual violence in our community.
We hope you will join us as one of the "100 Women Who Support SARCC Schuylkill".
