The Rape Crisis Center of Coastal Horizons
The Rape Crisis Center of Coastal Horizons Center (RCC), is the only stand-alone rape crisis center in Southeastern North Carolina. Serving New Hanover, Brunswick and Pender Counties, the RCC provides free and confidential services to victims of sexual violence in our community. RCC staff, interns, and volunteers provide 24-hour crisis response to victims via the hotline and in person at hospital emergency rooms. The RCC staff provides criminal justice advocacy for sexual assault victims, offering support through law enforcement interviews, meetings with the DA’s office, and throughout the duration of any court proceeding. RCC provides free individual therapy and weekly support groups for sexual violence survivors who would not otherwise have access to these services due to barriers such as being uninsured or having a high co-pay. All therapy services are facilitated by licensed clinicians.
