Since 1973, the Rape Crisis Center (RCC) has been committed to the mission of promoting hope, help, and healing for those harmed by sexual violence. We strive to also use education and outreach to create the social change to end sexual violence. The RCC provides services to survivors (and their family and friends) of all forms of sexual violence, including recent sexual assault, past sexual assault, incest (past or present), sexual harassment, and sexual exploitation. These services are provided free of charge and include crisis intervention and support via our 24-hour Helpline (608-251-7273), our Spanish language line La Línea (608-258-2567), short-term counseling, support groups, medical and legal advocacy and accompaniment, community education and outreach. RCC also operates Chimera Self-Defense Designed for Women, and Safer Bar, a workshop to help people working in alcohol-serving establishments gain the skills to deescalate situations and maintain a safe establishment.
