ARCC Events and News Updates

At Abuse & Rape Crisis Center, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts to bring awareness to domestic violence and sexual violence dynamics.  These conversations are by no means an easy feat, but through cooperation and community empowerment we believe we can facilitate progress in this area. We are always striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more and lend your support.

Rally for Survivors

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month
We have heard from many members in our community wondering if victims and survivors of sexual violence know they have community support. Since April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, we thought this would be a great time to show this support to victims and survivors in our community. ARCC invites you to join us for a Rally for Survivors on April 2nd from 11 am – 2 pm outside of the Bradford County Courthouse. We encourage all attendees to wear masks and socially distance as much as possible during the event. We will also have ways that you can show your support virtually and online if you are not comfortable attending in person.
During the event, the Bradford County Commissioners will proclaim April as Sexual Assault Awareness Month in Bradford County which will also be shared via Facebook Live. There will be materials and information available related to different forms of sexual violence, local resources available, and many ways for our community to show their support for those who have been traumatized by sexual violence.

WAYS TO PARTICIPATE VIRTUALLY
• Send a letter, a note, or a message to survivors to ARCC via email or message ARCC’s Facebook page. We will post your letter (anonymously if you prefer – just let us know) to our website and to the ARCC Facebook page for this event.

Bradford County Connect A Ride

We are now accepting applications for Volunteer Drivers!

ARCC has been working with other community agencies toward creating a volunteer driver program to help meet the transportation needs of the vulnerable and at-risk people and families in our area.

Funding was awarded to ARCC through a competitive application from the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency Victims of Crime Act to establish a volunteer driver program in our county.

The focus of the funding is to provide needed transportation assistance to victims and survivors of crime. The community agency team members are trying to address the myriad of needs in the most efficient and collaborative way possible.

Applications to become a volunteer driver are now available. Compensation for mileage may vary based on available funding. It is expected that volunteer drivers accepted into the program will use their personal vehicles to provide transportation. A short training is required for all successful applicants.

If you have questions or are interested, please email BcCAR@arccbc.org
