The Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape is proud to announce that the Sexual Assault Resource and Counseling Center (SARCC) earned the 2015 Governor’s
Victim Service Pathfinders Award.
The prestigious award is presented to one program who has made notable contributions to the program for which they work, the community they serve, or the field of victim services.
“SARCC is honored to be recognized through the Pathfinder Award for the work we are doing in the community to end sexual violence,” said SARCC CEO Jenny Murphy-Shifflet.
SARCC serves Lebanon and Schuylkill counties, recognizing the impact of sexual assault on all individuals, families, and communities; counsels and supports clients; advocates for the rights of victims; and educates for the elimination of sexual assault in Lebanon and Schuylkill counties.
SARCC has been instrumental in bringing two evidence-based programs to the area - a satellite office of the PinnacleHealth Children’s Resource Center and the launch of the Live the Green Dot Campaign.
SARCC has also worked to build services to the Spanish-speaking population in its service area.
In 2013 and 2014, SARCC was recognized as the Nonprofit of the Year in both Schuylkill and Lebanon counties.
Founded in 1975, Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape advocates for the rights and needs of sexual assault victims and works to end sexual violence. PCAR partners with a network of rape crisis programs to bring help, hope and healing around issues of sexual violence to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
