Welcome to the Rape Crisis Center
Serving Dane County since 1973, the Rape Crisis Center (RCC) provides services to the 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 (24 hour Crisis Line and on-call Advocate/Counselors), short-term counseling, support groups, medical/legal advocacy and accompaniment, community education, and Chimera Self-Defense Designed for Women. RCC serves women, children, and men.
Our Thousand Cranes Project was a success! Several awesome groups got very involved and helped us EXCEED our goal of 1,000 origami cranes! Thanks so much to everyone who sponsored or donated a crane! The next step is looking for somewhere to display all these cranes next April… Stay tuned for updates!

Bring in your old cell phones!
Donated cell phones are sent to a recycling program and in return, RCC receives money to support our free services.
You can drop off your old cell phone or organize a cell phone drop box and bring the phones in to RCC's main office at 2801 Coho Street, Suite 301.

RCC is so grateful to GeekWorld for their support! Chris-the-Geek and his team help make sense of various computer nonsense so RCC staff can focus on our essential work. We've long trusted them with our network and database support - and they even speak real English instead of computer-talk.
