Southeastern Alberta Sexual Assault Response Committee

Realizing there was a need in the community to provide support to survivors of sexual assault, a grassroots effort brought like-minded people together in the late 1980s. Over the years, the Sexual Assault Response Committee (SARC) grew into a government grant and donation funded organization. With funding now available, SARC was able to expand its services in the community and reach more people requiring help.

Today, SARC offers numerous school education programs, First Responder Training, counselling services, and awareness campaigns. There are currently more than 50 partnering agencies including Medicine Hat Police Services, RCMP, Alberta Health Services, Cantara Safe House (Brooks), and Child and Family Services.

SARC is a member of the Association of Alberta Sexual Assault Services (AASAS). AASAS is the provincial governing body that works through its member agencies to ensure that all Albertans have access to services. AASAS’s mission is to provide leadership, coordination, and a unified voice on issues of sexual violence while increasing recognition and support for sexual assault centres in Alberta.

We welcome new partners to join our cause.
