NWARC's Services

Crisis Line

For intervention and information. The crisis line is available 24-hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.  Information and assistance is provided by trained volunteers and staff members.  There are always bilingual advocates available to take calls in Spanish.

To assist and support survivors of sexual assault during visits to local hospitals, police stations, and courts.  Our advocates are familiar with area health providers, Victim Assistance Coordinators, and Police Departments,  and can help survivors assess their options after an assault.

Support Groups
For survivors of sexual assault, friends and family of survivors, and adult survivors of incest. Support groups meet weekly for one hour. For more information contact the Victim Services Coordinator at (479) 927-1025.  Para el grupo de apoyo en espanol,

One-on-One Support
Providing individual survivors an environment to discuss issues surrounding them that they may not feel comfortable discussing in a group format.  Follow-up advocacy can be extremely important for survivors with PTSD and/or Rape Trauma Syndrome.   

Community Education
NWARC provides community education in the form of presentations to area schools and civic groups. We cover all topics associated with sexual assault including date rape, dating violence, stalking, and prevention.

In-Service Training
Sexual assault prevention and awareness trainings available for area professionals, such as police officers, hospital personnel, and educators, as well as anyone else who is interested in learning more about the problem of sexual violence.  If you are interested in attended our training, contact the Education Training Coordinator.  

Resource Library
NWARC’s resource library is available to the entire community and is full of books and videos that are available for loan.  Many titles and videos are in Spanish.  We have information about male sexual assault, incest, marital rape, and more.

P.E.E.R.S. Program
To do our part in educating teenagers in our community,  Northwest Arkansas Rape Crisis, Inc has initiated a P.E.E.R.S. Program (Prevention, Education, Empowerment, Recovery and Support). This program is designed to teach adolescents about dating safety, date rape prevention, date rape drugs, what to do if a friend is raped, and other sexual assault issues. Students make a pledge to stop sexual violence in their school.
