The Monterey County Rape Crisis Center (MCRCC) is a nonprofit agency whose mission is to advocate for all victims and survivors of sexual assault and child sexual abuse, to prevent sexual violence in our community through education, and to provide ongoing support and healing to survivors of sexual assault.


All individuals in Monterey County will treat each other with respect and feel empowered to make safe, healthy choices towards ending sexual violence.


The Monterey Rape Crisis Center was founded in 1973. In 2007, services expanded to include the entirety of Monterey County and we changed our name to the Monterey County Rape Crisis Center to reflect the entire area we serve.
