Piedmont Rape Crisis Center
Empowering hope, through support, awareness, & advocacy


Mission & Founding Principles

The mission of the Piedmont Rape Crisis Center is to end sexual assault by empowering sexual assault victims into survivors through advocacy, support, community awareness, and education.

Founded in 2001 as a result of the efforts of the Sexual Assault Task Force, Piedmont Rape Crisis Center (PRCC) is a non-profit adult advocacy agency which serves Banks, Barrow and Jackson Counties.

All program services are provided free to primary and secondary adult (ages 18+) victims of all forms of sexual violence. We provide a wide range of crisis intervention which encourage survivors to find their best path to healing. We strive to serve all clients professionally and efficiently providing:

  • Crisis Hotline
  • Forensic Exam Accompaniment
  • Resources & Referrals
  • Legal Advocacy
  • Counseling Assistance
  • Family Support
  • Community Education & Outreach
  • Professional Training

The staff and volunteers of PRCC respect the uniqueness of each survivor’s experience and path to healing. Consequently, we work from a holistic approach model to empower each survivor to discover the ongoing areas in which she/he needs help. We also realize that the effects of sexual assault are long lasting and ongoing. Many survivors we work with come to us years after an assault, so our support is given whether an assault just occurred or occurred some time ago.
