DCRCC offers free, confidential, trauma-informed counseling and case management to survivors of sexual violence and their friends, family, and partners. Trained advocates provide crisis intervention, support, advocacy, and referrals 24/7, 365 days a year. DCRCC also elevates public awareness – given new urgency by the #MeToo movement – and advocates for improved policies by giving voice to survivors and speaking directly to social justice issues like racism that greatly exacerbate trauma. Not surprisingly, the pandemic has created a surge in client requests and the move to telehealth has made a painful situation even more painful. In response, DCRCC has expanded its hotline and added staff to meet the increase in callers and requests for therapy. Cleaning supplies, PPE, self-care items, iPads for clients in Wards 5, 7 and 8 who lack access to technology – will help bring survivors the support they deserve.
