SARC Harford County wrote -SARC (The Sexual Assault/Spouse Abuse Resource Center) is Harford County’s lifeline to victims, potential victims, and survivors of domestic violence, sexual violence, child abuse and stalking. Working within the community, we are the catalyst for the eradication and prevention of violence. Mission: We work to end domestic violence, sexual violence, and stalking, to aid its victims, and to create a society free from abuse and fear. Each day, SARC staff prepares to support their clients through the crises they face. Whether taking the step to flee from the abuse in their home or developing safety plans to empower our clients as they face their abuser each day, SARC staff is there to support these women, men, and children as they make the journey from victim to survivor. Each year, SARC is able to support an average of 1,500 clients, but that is just a small portion of those experiencing violence in their lives. The State of Maryland estimates that over 200,000 incidents of domestic abuse occur in our state each year. SARC is able to provide these resources thanks to your support, and it is only with your support that we will be able to work towards a society free of abuse and fear. SARC thanks you for your support, as do the clients we serve; their safety would not be possible without it.
