We changed our name from Women's Rape Crisis Center in 2011 as a response to our growing services and need to be inclusive of all the people we served.
"Hope is what gave me the strength to wake up every day and face the world."
"Hope is sitting in a [support group] with women who…are resilient, radiant, and captivating … who are out in the world working, living, and parenting."
"Hope means the heartfelt real possibility that we can, working all together, end any form of violence."
"Initially I had no hope—eventually, as I began to heal, I realized that hope is one of the strongest tools in healing."
"Hope means mass resistance to the undercurrent of sexual violence, and resistance to the thought that there is nothing we can do about it."
– a survivor’s quote on hope.
