The Sexual Assault Resource Center (SARC) of Washington County, whose mission is to promote social justice by ending sexual violence through advocacy, support and education, was founded in 1977 and remains a unique fixture today in Oregon as one of the two remaining stand-alone non-profits dedicated to serving survivors of sexual assault. Our full array of free and confidential services to sexual assault survivors include a 24-hour support line as well as an in-person response team for survivors who are undergoing medical attention and/or filing a police report; case management; and individual and group mental health services through SARC’s Alder Program, which provides sound trauma-informed and evidence-based mental health services to adolescent and adult survivors of sexual assault in an effort to prevent, eliminate, or in some cases at least reduce the effects of common trauma responses including depression and PTSD.
SARC also offers, at negotiable sliding-scale rates, a variety of community education and training opportunities to community partners on topics such as SARC’s services, dynamics of perpetrator behavior, trauma, and more (our “community education activities”) and comprehensive primary prevention education services to schools, businesses, nonprofits, and other community groups at sliding-scale rates, including ongoing support and training to schools implementing our primary prevention curricula, known as “P2: Promoting Healthy Relationships and Preventing Violence” (our “prevention services”) P2 is an evidence-based program built on an anti-oppression, trauma-informed foundation incorporating principles of popular education that engage participants as experts in their own experience. P2 examines unhealthy norms that allow sexual violence to exist and promotes healthy romantic and sexual relationship norms through discussion and activities including sexuality, consent, sexual violence, oppression, gender, media, pornography, bystander intervention, victim-blaming, and rejection.
