Description of Agency
VSC is the sole non-profit comprehensive crime victims agency located in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania that provides free and confidential comprehensive support services to crime victims, their families and significant others; prevention education and risk reduction programs, and training to the professionals who work with the victims of these crimes. All services are provided free of charge to those who request assistance.
Our mission is to provide advocacy and counseling for all who have been affected by sexual violence and other crimes against the person, and to promote sensitivity and awareness in the community through education.
Victim Services Center of Montgomery County, Inc. (VSC) was originally organized as Women Against Rape in 1974 out of concerns about the lack of a sensitive response to victims of sexual assault. In 1980, recognizing the fact that both men and women are victims and both men and women can contribute to the solution, the agency became the Rape Crisis Center. In 1985, services to other serious crime victims were added and again the name was changed, this time to Victim Services Center of Montgomery County, Inc.
