WELCOME TO THE ORCC
The Ottawa Rape Crisis Centre is a pro-active, anti-racist, feminist organization. We counsel and support women, educate for change and work to create a safe and equitable community. Through education, empowerment and respect the ORCC serves to rally voices in the community around the issues of sexual violence and feminism. This may include: sexual assault, rape, childhood sexual assault/abuse, incest, sexual harassment and ritualized abuse. We also provide services to family, friends, and partners/spouses of women who have been sexually assaulted.
Since 1974 we have developed into a community leader in the fight to eliminate sexual violence against women and creating safe communities for all.
We are experiencing an epidemic of violence against women in our community, in our country and our global village – let’s work together from global to local to create safe spaces for all free of sexual violence.
Dropping in to Check-in
Each Thursday afternoon from 1:30pm-4:30pm we are hosting a drop-in to connect with other survivors in a supportive space while enjoying beverages and snacks. Optional activities will vary week to week. Individual support will also be available during this time.
This drop-in is available to all those who are waiting to access, who are accessing, or who have accessed ORCC services in the past. The drop-in is free of charge. Bus Tickets and some funds for childcare are available. If you need more information please contact Rukiya at ORCC: 613-562-2334 Ex. 30 email@example.com
