Serving Dane County since 1973, the Rape Crisis Center (RCC) provides services to survivors (and their family and friends) of all forms of sexual violence, including recent sexual assault, past sexual assault, incest (past or present), sexual harassment, and sexual exploitation.


These services are provided free of charge and include crisis intervention and support via our 24-hour Helpline (608-251-7273), our Spanish language line La Línea (608-258-2567), short-term counseling, support groups, medical and legal advocacy and accompaniment, community education and outreach.


RCC also operates Chimera Self-Defense Designed for Women, and Safer Bar.


We would like to extend our appreciation to:

  • Madison South Rotary Foundation for awarding RCC a grant of $985 to help RCC print essential outreach and program materials for those in our community whose primary language is Spanish. We are grateful for their generosity! These community grants are funded through Madison South Rotary Club’s Brat Stand on Monroe Street—so please help support their efforts during the UW football season by purchasing a brat! You can find out more here.
  • Ancora Coffee, Cargo and Ground Zero Coffee, Colectivo Coffee, EVP Coffee Co., Indie Coffee, Java Cat, True Coffee Roasters who graciously donated their employees, time, and coffee to the 21st Anniversary Java Jive (our annual coffee tasting benefit). Without their support our event wouldn’t be a success. Please find a link to each coffee shop’s website under the In-Kind Donors section.
