The Boston Area Rape Crisis Center (BARCC) was created in 1973 by a small group of visionary women who volunteered their time, energy, and talent to take action to help rape survivors. Today, volunteers and interns continue to make up the backbone of everything we do, with more than 100 dedicated volunteers and interns contributing upwards of 44,000 hours of time to BARCC each year. We could not do our work without them.
When survivors are believed, cared for, and respected, they experience fewer long-term, negative effects from rape. That’s the kind of change to which BARCC is committed, and it’s the kind of change that you can help bring about. Here’s how:
BARCC is easily accessible by public transportation via the MBTA. On-street parking also is available.
