OUR MISSION STATEMENT
The Rape Crisis Center for children and adults was founded in 1975 to provide comprehensive services to sexual assault victims and their families.
The Center also conducts sexual assault education programs across Bexar County and surrounding areas.
In the mid-1970s, community leaders, activists, and survivors of sexual assault had a vision to create a nonprofit agency that would support victims of sexual assault in San Antonio and Bexar County. The Rape Crisis Center began providing supportive services to victims in November 1975. The Center's goal was to ensure victims of sexual violence would have a responsive medical community, sensitive law enforcement officials, and active prosecution system.
Established as a private, nonprofit, 501(c)(3) agency, the Rape Crisis Center receives funding federal, state, local funding, as well as funding from private individuals, foundations and the business community.
