BRCC serves anyone affected by sexual violence and strives to be intersectional, inclusive, and survivor centered. All staff and volunteer advocates complete a 40 hour training program. A robust education and outreach department seeks to prevent sexual violence by educating students on healthy relationships and boundaries. This anti violence work delivers measurable, tangible outcomes in schools across the Bluegrass. Our Director of Advocacy works with survivors and legal professionals to train law enforcement in trauma informed techniques.

We envision a world free of all forms of violence and oppression. We see communities that offer safety and compassion for all and we believe that can start with you. We believe that it's possible for people to live in empowering relationships characterized by respect and equality. BRCC is guided by a spirit of forward movement, openness, and shared power.

BRCC volunteers, donors, clients, and supporters are the leaders of this movement at BRCC. Please join them.
BRCC is always in need of volunteers to run our 24/7 resource line and represent the organization at community events. Sometimes the issue of sexual violence in our community can feel insurmountable but every gift makes an impact. Your monetary donations support those affected by sexual violence in your community and they build a better world seeking to prevent violence and empower young people to have healthy relationships. When you make a gift to the Bluegrass Rape Crisis Center you are making a direct impact. We also deliver resource guides and other training and materials to hospitals, schools, and organizations across the Bluegrass.

By partnering your business or organization with BRCC you help to amplify our voices and show the community your values.
