All services are provided free of charge to those who request assistance.
MissionOur 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.
HistoryVictim 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.
