We are excited to announce that Rape Crisis of the Southern Tier will now be known as the Sexual Assault Resource Center (SARC). Along with our new name comes a beautiful new logo and new website as we continue to provide our core services in Chemung, Schuyler, and Steuben counties.Our hotline number is still 1-888-810-0093.
Since 1996, Rape Crisis of the Southern Tier (RCST) has provided compassionate support, steadfast advocacy, and exceptional education and outreach to all people in the Chemung, Schuyler, and Steuben counties. While the name Rape Crisis of the Southern Tier certainly describes one vital aspect of the work we do, it doesnt accurately reflectallof the services we provide. Early in 2012, we began work on making our program name and identity match the comprehensive and diverse work we do every day to serve, educate, and advocate for our community.
Our new logo resembles a heart with interwoven paths symbolizing the various roads survivors of sexual assault take on their journey to healing as well as representing the variety of services our program offers, says Lauren West, program director. The Sexual Assault Resource Center is committed to providing the highest level of support, advocacy, and education for all people in Chemung, Schuyler, and Steuben counties impacted by sexual violence. Thats one thing that will never change, says West.
