The mission of the Orange County Rape Crisis Center is to stop sexual violence and its impact through support, education, and advocacy. The Center envisions a just and equitable world free of sexual violence and all other forms of oppression.
The following statistics are from our 2014-2015 fiscal year: We served 524 survivors, providing support to survivors and their loved ones as well as offering resources for professionals and community members. We offered 15 support groups and workshops, some in English and some in Spanish. Nearly 100 percent of participants reported that our groups helped them feel less alone in their experience and more supported in their healing process. We provided 898 Community Education programs to 13,614 youth and adults. In addition to Safe Touch and Start Strong programs in local K-12 schools, the CE team worked more closely than ever with Client Services staff to deliver community-wide education opportunities, bringing customized programs to faith communities, neighborhoods, and families across the county.

I've been a Community Educator at the Orange County Rape Crisis Center since 2008. I received extensive training from the Center on basic rape crisis information, responding to victims of sexual violence, and presentation skills. I now regularly present programs to elementary school students about "Safe Touches." We teach students that no one should touch them in a way that makes them feel uncomfortable, and if something like that happens to them, they should follow the safety saying: Say No, Get Away, and Tell a Grown-up. It has been a joy to work with these kids. They're all so energetic and happy, and it is wonderful to know that I am making a difference in their lives. The Community Education team at the Center provides excellent support to volunteers to make sure we are comfortable with our programs. With their guidance and hard work, as well as the hard work of our volunteers, we are able to go to every elementary school classroom every year in both school districts in our county. And, the Center has recently added middle school programs as well as programs for children with disabilities. This remarkable direct impact on our community's children would not happen without the support and leadership of the Orange County Rape Crisis Center.

I have learned so much about sexual violence that I am happy to be a resource for friends & family, sharing my knowledge on confronting rape myths, helping a friend after experiencing sexual violence, and preventing and coping with child abuse.

Serving as a volunteer for the OCRCC is a dream. After volunteering at several other local organizations, I found the volunteer program at OCRCC to be far more organized, engaging, and geared towards finding volunteers' strengths. The staff is hard working, dedicated, and highly skilled. The organization as a whole is doing high quality and much-needed work for Orange County and way, way beyond. What a privilege to be connected to such a fabulous group of people.
