The Essex County Rape Care Center is delighted to have been the benficiary of a Parents That Rock concert.

The Essex County Rape Care Center of Family Service League is the State of New Jersey’s “designated” Rape Care Center for Essex County. The Center provides direct services to survivors of sexual violence and their families, and works to prevent sexual violence through education and advocacy. Programs include a free and confidential 24-hour Rape Care Hotline at 1-877-733-CARE (2273), “Accompaniment” services to callers choosing to go to hospital emergency departments or police precincts, free, unlimited professional counseling for survivors and their significant others, and outreach and education services in schools, hotpitals and professional settings throughout Essex County.

The Essex County Rape Care Center is a program of Family Service League. To find out more about the Center, about volunteering, or about supporting the Center's work, please call the Director Ursula Liebowitz at 973-746-0800. Whether it was 10 minutes ago or 10 years ago, help is available.

The Center and its staff and volunteers are so grateful to the Parents That Rock team for helping to raise awareness about sexual violence in our area by selecting the program as a recipient of proceeds from one of its wonderful fundrasiing concerts. These additional funds were used to help print Hotline cards and flyers that are placed in bathrooms, nightclubs and other locations to make the Hotline and other services known and available to people who have survived sexual violence. We are also grateful to the Diva Lounge for hosting this terrific event and for its own contribution to our work. Thank you!
