Founded in 1974 as Community Action Against Rape (CAAR), The Rape Crisis Center (RCC) began as the combined effort of Florence McClure and Sandra Petta, two women living in Las Vegas who were outraged by the lack of resources and respect for those affected by sexual assault. In the early days, Mrs. McClure ran The RCC out of her home, with the goal of helping those in Clark County heal from the trauma of sexual violence. Almost four decades later, RCC is still here, serving victims and working to educate the community and prevent sexual violence.
Currently, The RCC serves all of Clark County, Nevada. The organization is committed to providing crisis intervention, advocacy, and support to those affected by sexual violence. Our non-profit organization depends on a core base of dedicated volunteers and staff. These individuals are empathetic and enthusiastic people who give their time and energy to serve Clark County’s victims of sexual violence, and to be a voice in the community assuring access to a full range of services for victims and education for all to stop sexual violence in Southern Nevada.

We commit to offering help, hope, and healing to those affected by sexual violence.
We provide education, awareness and support as far as our arms can reach.
