The Support Advocacy and Resource Center is a support agency that works with victims of crime as well as sexual assault. SARC can be used by anyone who is a primary victim of sexual assault or any general crime. “Anyone can use SARC as a resource. Any age, any gender, any ethnicity, we can work with anybody,” SARC Program Director Renee Blackman said. 

SARC offers a crisis program that provides medical and legal advocacy, a 24-hour crisis line, counseling, and many other useful resources. “We serve in between 350 to 400 new victims of sexual assault each year.” Blackman said. SARC offers many children programs in which they discuss staying safe online, being healthy, identify triggers of stress, and having fun. 

Volunteers play a big role at SARC with open volunteer opportunities within the crisis and prevention programs, special projects, and the board of directors. All available opportunities are on the active SARC social media pages.
