The Union County Rape Crisis Center (UCRCC) is a program that operates under the Division of Individual & Family Support Services in the Union County Department of Human Services. By engaging in direct service, primary prevention education, training, and consultation, the UCRCC aims to shift prevailing beliefs and attitudes toward intolerance of all forms of interpersonal violence. The Union County Rape Crisis Center (UCRCC) operates a twenty-four (24) hour sexual assault crisis response and informational hotline. Via the hotline, survivors of sexual violence receive emotional support, crisis counseling, in-person accompaniment through forensic medical proceedings as well as law enforcement interviews, advocacy, information and referrals. Related assistance is also available for those collaterally impacted by such victimization. All services are free of charge. Furthermore, services are provided in a manner that preserves victim privacy and safeguards the victim's right to confidentiality pursuant to (N.J.S.A. 2A:84A-22.15).
